Shaking Crab Seafood restaurant has opened up the Hancock District  Quincy Center  April 2017 .  It   features Cajun-style seafood, serving up mussels, lobster, shrimp, and more, shaken up with a spice blend in a bag — and served in that bag. Also on the menu: fries, onion rings, wings, fried oysters, mac and cheese, mochi, and a few other items.    Shaking Crab  also has a location in Newton MA.

How to order

Step 1 Pick your seafood
Step 2 Choose your sauce -Shakin,Gulf, Seoul
Step 3 How spicy?
Step 4 Add your sides

Here are some of their reviews of food in both Quincy and Newton

I got the blue crab with a side of potatoes and it doesn’t come on a plate; it comes in a bag that they shake with all the spices and stuff mixed in. It’s messy food and it’s absolutely delicious. I got mine spicy but they have non spicy options as well. Keep in mind: they do provide bibs, wet napkins, a plastic bag to dump all the shells in, and gloves. Your hands and clothes will stay clean. Stay open to the experience, your face will get messy, but the food is really really good. Or at least, I enjoyed it. And I thought the servers were very nice and attentive. Can’t wait for the official opening of this place. It’s a wonderful addition to the Quincy food scene. Highly recommend giving this place a try

My recent trip to Shaking Crab was quite wonderful! The food was delightful in both taste and fun. The variety of sauces captured my taste buds while the plentiful bags of seafood filled my stomach. In addition, the set up of the restaurant makes for an inviting environment into the Shaking Crab experience. This was awesome, and I don’t even like seafood!

Soeul seasoning is the Best flavor for seafood shakin’ in a bag. My favorites are the crawfish, littlenecks, mussels, fried oysters, and garlic noodles, but definitely don’t forget to add in the corn and sausages into the seafood mix. I’ve worked in the restaurant industry for over 10 years and this place hires the best servers to take care of you all night! They are friendly, great at what they do, modern/stylish and happy to serve. No negative vibe from anyone of them. Haven’t once had any bad service every time I stop in. I do have one recommendation for the place. They should label the bags with the flavor and spiciness so when there’s a large party, customers would know which is which because some of the sauces look the same. All in all 5 out of 5!

get the blue crab with the Seoul chili sauce. And the crawfish with the same sauce. It is so good. They are also children friendly. Everyone that I have brought loves it and are returning customers. The best time to go is early Saturday and Sunday before 3. And during the middle of the week. On the weekends I do take out. But I love it. And they remember my face everytime I come here. Can’t wait until they open the new one. Plus there service is great. They move fast and always check on you I don’t care how busy it is.

Sorelle’s Italian Bar & Grill Route 18 Abington Now Opened

Sorelle’s Italian restaurant is finally open in April 2017    Sorelle Bar & Grill   opens  up in the former location of long time Italian favorite  Vin & Eddie restaurant on Route 18 in  Abington.   We are finally glad to see it open as it took them a lot longer than anticipated.  While Vin & Eddie’s served traditional Italian food, Sorelle will have more modern cuisine, including baked cod with fried polenta, acorn squash tortellini, and arugula pesto.

The Chef and Owner Andrea  Schnell’s  experience  includes working    upscale  The Winsor House in Duxbury and Square Café in Hingham.  She  spent the last 13 years as Executive Chef of the highly successful restaurant Square Cafe, in Hingham, MA. As Executive Chef of the Square Cafe, Schnell has garnered praise from some of the regions toughest food critics  (including many Swampies) and has established a following of regular customers, locals and visitors of Hingham, who can’t get enough of her inventive cuisine.  During her time  at the Square Cafe, she has received numerous awards and accolades from publications such as Boston Magazine, Boston Globe, Patriot Ledger and South Shore Magazine

Here is the Swampie Buzz  so far

The restaurant is beautiful. Very friendly greeters. Our reservation was for 6:15 pm. We got seated right away. The place was packed! Waiter was very friendly. He recommended this beautiful antipasto. I ordered the cod. It came with asparagus and polenta sticks. All yummy! Hubby had the salmon. It came with fingerling potatoes…i forget the veg. I took a bite of his salmon and it was very good. Food presentation is beautiful! The restaurant emptied out quite a bit by 7:30. Waiter let us sit and chat with our friends. No rush to get us out. By 8:15 we noticed that it was packed again so we left. I would go back to try other items on the menu. I hope they change up the menu now and then or add daily specials.

Finally! There’s no need to go into Boston or Providence! The beautiful atmosphere makes you feel like Chef Andrea  brought a little bit of Italy home to us! Delicious flavors yet not too exotic. Appetizers were nothing short of amazing. From the brussel sprouts to the calamari. Short Ribs melt in your mouth! Chicken Saltimbocca was delicious. The service was warm and friendly. Reasonable prices and so close to home. We will definitely be back very soon!

Our server, was fabulous!!! He was very knowledgeable, made recommendations and along with all the staff, was very attentive. The food was amazing!! We started with the roasted pear salad which was delicious!! My husband had the salmon and I, the Chicken Saltimbocca. Both meals  were very generous portions and delectable!! We decided  to take  desserts to go as we were very full. I ordered the tiramisu and my friend  the bread pudding, both desserts were again very delicious! Our whole evening at Sorelle was amazing!!! I suggest everyone try this new amazing restaurant, you won’t be disappointed, ! We will definitely be back!!!

Open Daily for dinner at  Mon-Sat at 5pm and Sun 4pm
