Feeling crabby

Hazel, Ravines and Downtown — 1 Peabody Street, Birmingham — has given another seafood centric takeover to their menu, this time in the form of a Crab Trap, which runs through February 16. Co-owner Beth Hussey – who owns the restaurant with chef Emmele Herrold — said it’s very Florida-themed in decor and cuisine, with the hopes of emulating a crab shack on the Gulf Coast. “We want you to feel like you’re on vacation and a tourist on a beach resort,” Hussey said. Menu items include the Florida Stone Crab (which Hussey called the star of the show), Cedar Key Clams, a variety of Florida fish, alligator, and a sandwich that’s a cross between a lobster roll and po’ boy. HRD has partnered with Street Beet, a plant-based pop up, to make a vegan sandwich for this special menu as well. The desserts and drinks will have the Florida feel, with “cheesy frozen drinks” now gracing the menu, like daiquiris, margaritas, and Bushwackers, which are a boozy vanilla milkshake. HRD will also have non-seafood items, like their burger, wings, and cheese bread for those not feeling the seafood vibe.
