What they say:

The world's most expensive variety of crab, red king crab, is set to be the focal point for new restaurant Fancy Crab in Marylebone. The swish spot is opening up in the former spot of Black and Blue Steakhouse on Wigmore Street and, as well as a restaurant, will have two bars. The menu will be largely a variety of crab dishes, with seafood sides and a few meat plates such as burgers and a whole, charcoal-cooked chicken.

What we say:

From Singapore-style with chilli through to hot buttered and with hollandaise, Fancy Crab is serious about their crustaceans. The new restaurant is serving red king crab that is naturally found in the waters surrounding Alaska and Russia and can have a leg span of nearly 2m; go in a group to the new spot and you could order a whole one. If you're not crazy about crabs the seafood restaurant will also serve sides such as scallop ceviche, oysters and tuna tartare.
