  • About

Crab Norfolk is a specialty of Norfolk, Virginia, where it was first created by W. O. Snowden of the once popular, now defunct, Snowden and Mason Restaurant, which opened in that city in 1924. The dish was originally cooked in specially designed, small oval aluminum pans. In some establishments in Norfolk it is still cooked and served in those pans.
