I live in Florida where we have many authentic crab houses serving crabs, shrimp and oysters on tables covered with newspapers. The last thing that I expected to find in Paris was a crab house like we have back home. That said, this was the real deal with spider crabs, two types of oysters (both excellent), and local shrimp called "langostines" that tasted more like lobster than shrimp. Service was also friendly and prompt. There were only two negatives to our dinner...the first being that my preferred dungeness crabs were not in season and only spider crabs were available during my visit, and the second being that the dinner was expensive by my American crab house standards. My dinner of a half crab and half a dozen oysters cost me around $40, whereas at home the same dinner might have been closer to $25. I'm not complaining, however, as most restaurant prices in Paris were much higher than those at home. The one exception was steak tartare, which for some reason was much cheaper in Paris than it is at home.
