What’s just as good as when Chef Tony’s crab dishes are on the menu at Nisbet? When Patterson holds his crab races!

The weekly crab races return to Nisbet much to the liking of our guests, and even the crabs!

The races are set up as a fundraiser for Nevis’ Cotton Ground Youth Fund. This first race made over US$100!

Each week Patterson gathers crabs from the beach and takes bets for the race. Numbers are painted on their backs in red nail polish. Dont worry – no crabs were harmed during this race. At the end of the race the crabs are released back into the wild.

As part of the continuing improvements to Nisbet, we even upgraded the box for the crabs from a boring cardboard box to a nicely painted wood box.
