Slapfish To Open in July in Rockville

California chain to offer special ‘Clobster Cake’ that’s half crab, half lobster



Seafood lovers can try a new combination of two favorites—crab and lobster—when Slapfish opens its first East Coast location in mid-July in Rockville’s Montrose Crossing shopping center.

In an announcement Thursday about the opening, the California chain of fast-casual seafood restaurants said the Rockville location will offer a special “Clobster Cake” that’s half Maryland crabmeat and half New England lobster.

The restaurant chain, based in Orange County, started as a food truck and aims to evoke the “classic seafood shack.” Its dishes include “Clobster Grilled Cheese,” a sandwich made with crab and lobster; chowder fries; a lobster grinder; a lobster burger; fish and chips; and grilled shrimp burritos, as well as lettuce-wrapped fish tacos.

The Rockville location at 12055 Rockville Pike is in the shopping center anchored by Giant and Target and including other eateries such as Honeygrow and Cava.

The Slapfish chain, which operates 13 restaurants in California, Utah and New Mexico, is planning to open 10 more locations, including the Rockville restaurant, over the next six months, according to the announcement.
