Choptank - CLOSED
New York, NY 10014
Village Voice's Description
Named after a river that flows into Chesapeake Bay, Choptank seeks to reproduce the cooking of Baltimore, and mainly succeeds. The crabcakes are glorious, with little filler. Though a bit smaller, they compare favorably with the legendary ones served at Faidley"s. Polish sausage has actually been sourced in Baltimore, at Ostrowski"s, so that base in well-covered, and the fried chicken makes another right-on imitation of the Lexington Market original. There"s a decent crab chowder (but no authentic crab soup) and a passel of homemade potato chips dusted with - What else?--Old Bay Seasoning. The interior of the restaurant is as convoluted as a ship"s hold.
Tips from foursquare
West Village restaurant serving Chesapeake Bay-inspired seafood and other shore-based comfort foods. Owned by the guys behind neighborhood favorites Dell'Anima and L'Artusi.
½ price oysters from 5.30 to 7.30pm! Try the old bay seasoned potato chips and crab dip! Go for more crab and get the crab cake!
get the shrimp taco and the oyster poboy, you'll thank me for it later!!!!
Top 5 burger in the city and if it's not a meat night the crab cake is awesome
Head in on a Monday, grab a giant growler and smash the crap out of the all you can eat crabs!
