Wow! We had a fantastic evening at Claw Daddy! We had adult Capri suns and shared a crawfish and crab leg broil which was incredible - one of the best meals I have ever had and I would recommend to anyone visiting the city!

This east of 1st Avenue restaurant has great character, a fun and extensive menu of crabs, oysters and other dishes with a definite Southern twist, cocktails in adult Capri Sun style bags, plastic bibs and plenty to eat and talk. A find.

The restaurant is not fancy with its decoration. However, the food was generally good and delicious. The spicy one was too hot but nice. The shrimp size is OK. The price was not too expensive but acceptable. Service is good

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
