NOAH'S in Greenport offers a fine panko-crusted, pan-seared crabcake, paired with a celery root-and-apple version of sauce remoulade. Also, sample the crab-stuffed deviled eggs. And, just because they're there: warm, Gruyere cheese puffs.
in LOUIE'S Port Washington scores with a local spin on cioppino, the seafood stew of San Francisco. Mussels, clams, shrimp, finfish in a tomato-shellfish broth. You'll find Maryland crabcakes and a crab cocktail here, too.
