Seafood: Crabby’s Seafood Bar & Grill in Joplin, Missouri

Crabby’s Seafood Bar & Grill has a fairly Spartan exterior, but don’t be fooled – inside, chef Damien Tiregol is cooking some of the most vibrant seafood dishes around. Specialties include scallops with a beurre blanc sauce and pan-seared Chilean seabass, although the Alaskan king crab legs and fresh oysters shouldn’t be missed. (Photo by Mark Neuenschwander)
