Don Vechery’s new Steamin’ Blues crabhouse will open in the old Jakes Seafood location at the corner of Baltimore Avenue and First St. in downtown Rehoboth Beach. This is Don’s second venture in the area, having run the successful Surfing Crab just north of Lewes for a long time.
The layout will be similar to Jakes, with around 125 seats and about 11 at the bar. Interestingly, The Rehoboth Foodie’s most recent restaurant was located in Bethesda, MD, just down the street from Vechery’s family’s Bethesda Crab House. Go figure.
