Crab legs, crab cakes, and even she-crab soup. But when I stopped in The River Room in Georgetown, one look at the menu told me I was wrong. Along with a large selection of delicious seafood, the restaurant offers “deviled crab,” as part of its traditional Fried Seafood Platter. The result? A crab cake-like mixture creatively served in an empty crab shell. Let’s put it this…
