Shaking Crab Bursts Into Quincy With Bags Full of Cajun-Style Seafood

Peek inside the new location of the Newton-based restaurant

Newton’s Shaking Crab expanded to Quincy this week, softly opening at 22 Cottage Ave. and offering 10% off each bill until the grand opening, which will take place at a later date (to be announced). Due to a delay in the liquor license, there’s no booze yet, but there will be in the future.

Shaking Crab features Cajun-style seafood, serving up mussels, lobster, shrimp, and more, shaken up with a spice blend in a bag — and served in that bag. Also on the menu: fries, onion rings, wings, fried oysters, mac and cheese, mochi, and a few other items.

The restaurant first opened in Newton in 2015 and expanded to Flushing, New York in mid-2016. Here’s a peek inside the brand new Quincy location, which is right by several other new restaurants — Zef Cicchetti & Raw Bar (Alba’s sibling and neighbor), 16C, and Pho Pasteur.
