Founded by two NYC transplants born and raised in Maryland who just weren’t satisfied with the quality of crab cakes available in the city. Tired of complaining they decided to do something about it and The Bay was born. The Bay is proud to bring you the city’s best crab cakes made exclusively with jumbo lump blue crab meat shipped in daily from Maryland. For more information about The Bay please visit,


These days, we make all our beer by hand at a brewery in Long Island City, Queens. But before that, we were home brewing in our Far Rockaway backyards – mainly so we’d have something to sip on after a day of surfing. The times may have changed, but we still handcraft every batch with the same fresh ingredients. You can snag RBCo all over Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan – or swing by our brew house to grab a glass, fill up a growler, tour the place, and jam to some reggae. We hope you enjoy drinking RBCo as much as we do making it. For more information about Rockaway Brewing Company please visit,
