"I like being able to play around, change things up a bit," says Harold Dieterle of the crab dinners he's doing at his West Village Thai restaurant Kin Shop every Monday. The five-course meal is $60 per person ($23 extra for beverage pairings) and features crab four ways—plus a crab-inspired ice cream sandwich at the end.
Preparations range from a hot and sour soup (its broth based on crab roe) to stir-fried crab noodles and a crab body stuffed with pork sausage. Dieterle will be offering the menu every Monday "for the foreseeable future." Check out the whole lineup in the slideshow.
