The 2018 Best Seafood Towers in Dallas

oyster_2by Steven Doyle

The glorious  seafood tower is a dish of raw and cooked shellfish served cold on a platter, usually on a bed of ice. The serving platter is generally held above table level with a stand and sometimes can contain multiple, elaborate tiers. This is both for visual effect, and because the shellfish are often served in the shell, or on the half shell, which causes them to take up a large area while containing only a bite or two of meat.  

We found some very nice versions in Dallas. Although they are not particularly inexpensive, as would be expected when you start adding King Crab and elusive oysters, but typically you may order several levels to feed a varying amount of people you are dining with. However, one might make an entire meal of such platter along with a special bottle of wine.

Enjoy this bit of extravagance which is appropriate for any occasion. See our list, in no particular order. Prices listed, otherwise the tower is market-priced. Continue reading

I recently wrote about the marvel that is the stone crab and all of its glory, such as heavy sustainability, deliciously sweet and dense claw meat, and it’s short fishing season which ends May 15th.

I also wrote about the hot deal that Truluck’s has on their stone crab each Monday where the claws are $79 for as many as you care to enjoy. In full disclosure I have been to truluck’s many times but never participated in the crab feast. It sounded exactly like something that would thrill me. I checked into Truluck’s last evening and guess what? It thrilled me.  Continue reading

The Unlimited Stone Crab Feast At Trulucks Worth It’s Weight In Crab

Crab season, specifically stone crab season, is like Christmas around the Crave Offices. Stone Crab is food of the gods. And the best catch is at Truluck’s. This is what they do well.

The Stone Crab is extremely sustainable, and the fisherman only take one claw which is detachable. The crab quickly grows a new one. Those claws pack a mean punch too, able to crush up to 19,000 pounds per square inch.  Stone Crab are prolific too, laying up to a million eggs at a time. Continue reading

One of our very favorite restaurants in Dallas is Truluck’s. This is the place known for pretty awesome steaks, but especially their stone crab. For those unfamiliar, stone crab is this beautiful claw which can be quite large, massive actually. The meat is quite dense and sweet and best served cold with a dab of a special mustard sauce.  Continue reading
