B&O Crab Bash 

You’re invited to a crabsolutely appetizing affair! After a three-year hiatus, Baltimore’s favorite crab cook-off featuring award-winning chefs from around the region, will return to B&O American Brasserie for its fifth installation on Sunday, August 20 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Crab Bash will feature executive chefs from some of Baltimore’s top restaurants including Gunther & Co.’s Jerry Trice, The Food Market’s Chad Gauss, Waterfront Kitchen’s Cyrus Keefer, Schola Cooking’s Jerry Pelligrino and B&O’s own Chef Scott Hines.

The chefs will cook off against one another in search of the Best Crab Dish and bragging rights for the year. Both event attendees and a panel of local celebrity judges will have the opportunity to sample and vote on their favorite crab dish created by participating chefs. One chef will be awarded a “People’s Choice” award, which will be based solely on the votes of attendees, and one chef will be awarded a trophy for “Best in Show” by a panel of judges.

B&O American Brasserie will host the Crab Bash chef cook-off, this year benefiting Waterfront Partnership, the non-profit organization behind some of Baltimore’s favorite events and features like Baltimore Book Festival and the PANDORA Ice Rink, creating and managing a world-class destination at Baltimore’s Waterfront.

For an admission fee of $35 per person ($40 day of), guests are invited to watch the chefs battle it out, enjoy live music, sample the chefs’ dishes, and also vote on their favorite cocktails by members of the Baltimore Bartenders’ Guild. Admission also includes a raffle with the chance to win a variety of prizes. Attendees are also invited to attend the Crab Bash after-party, when “crabby hour” with drink specials begins at 9 p.m.
