Attention Bay Area crab lovers: you only have 5 days left to attend the Dungeness Crab Festival hosted by Lark Creek Restaurant Group. They have added delicious, creative crab dishes to their menus, including One Market Restaurant and Lark Creek Steak in San Francisco, Yankee Pier in Larkspur, and Lark Creek Blue on San Jose’s Santana Row.
I also have an opportunity for one of you to win a gift card good at Lark Creek restaurants -- see end of article for contest details. You can use the card during the last couple days of the crab festival, or at a future date.
The staff at Lark Creek’s restaurants buy live crabs, then cook and clean them, ensuring that customers receive top-quality, fresh seafood.
These selections will be available through Feb. 28, 2014. Highlights are below; see Lark Creek’s news site for links to all restaurants and special menus.
