Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co.

The Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co., the new restaurant from Sidney Street Cafe chef Kevin Nashan, delivered on its ambitions from the day it opened its doors in August 2014. The menu celebrates American seafood from New England to the Chesapeake Bay to Louisiana: lobster boils and lobster rolls (warm or cold), steamed Maryland blue crabs with Old Bay and fried-shrimp po’boys. The Peacemaker is casual, family-friendly and, except for the market-price lobster and crab dishes, not too expensive — and one of the best dishes here, a roll with fried clam strips and a chive aioli, is all of $11.
