The 6th East Coast She-Crab Soup Classic is tomorrow at the 24th Street Park. Over 15 of the area's best restaurants will compete to be named the one with the best She-Crab soup in Hampton Roads. Last year Mannino's Italian Bistro won both the Critic's and People's Choice awards. Read my review from the last one here on AltDaily. There will be lines, but the soup makes up for it.
Here who is competing this year:
328 Tequila Lounge
Lucky Oyster Seafood Grill
Lynnhaven Fish House
Mahi Mah's Seafood
Mannino’s Italian Bistro
McCormick & Schmick’s
Murphy’s Irish Pub
Passion the Restaurant
Roger Brown's Restaurant and Sports Bar
The gates open at noon and the event ends at 3:00 PM. When you enter the park you'll make your way around the tables and get a sample of she-crab soup. Use your score sheet to mark your favorites and turn it in when you're done. Votes will be tabulated the winners will be named at the end of the event! When you're done, go grab a beer at one of the local watering holes. You can even make the Back Bay Brewing Co. grand opening on Norfolk Ave. down the way!

See you there!
