With May 11th just around the corner, we can’t help but get excited about the seafood in the wharf section of #sweetlife2013’s experience forest!
Luke Holden of Luke’s Lobster was born in a small coastal town in Maine. After trying out a career in finance, Luke took up the lobstering life and opened up the first Luke’s Lobster in New York’s East Village in 2009. Since then, Luke has opened 8 other Luke’s Lobsters, including three in DC! Their menu features authentic Maine style lobster, crab, and shrimp rolls – and that’s just some of what they’ll be serving up at #sweetlife2013!
Rappahannock Oyster Company can trace its founding all the way back to 1899, when James Arthur Croxton, Jr. began harvesting oysters at the bottom of the Rappahannock River in Virginia. Since then, the company has had a tradition of providing customers with bay oysters that possess the unique flavors of the Chesapeake Bay region. Check out any of their three restaurants in the DC area or get your first taste of these oysters at the festival!
Hammer & Claws is New York City’s first, and only, authentic Maryland Blue Crab Feast. Their mission is to bring the taste of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay to those who do not have delicious blue crabs in their backyard, which is probably most of us. Their blue crabs come straight from the Chesapeake to our plates at #sweetlife2013!
