Best Deviled Crabs in Tampa

LB, You are the first to mention the CASABLANCA, We visited Tampa a couple times a year when I was a child, our first stop was always CASABLANCA,. We moved to TAMPA in the 60's, I attended school during my 8th grade year at the Catholic School in Ybor City. I walked down to the CASABLANCA every day for lunch and I would eat one or two deviled crabs walking back to school. I hadn't been to Tampa for a few years. I was married in 1972 and we honeymooned in TAMPA, all the way down there i was telling my wife about the deviled crabs. Our first stop CASABLANCA, the building was torn down,I talked to a few people in the neighborhood, nobody seemed to have any info. PLEASE HELP ME. Any info would be great. Does anyone have a deviled crab close to what CASABLANCA made? Any recipes out there? Thank You, Tip Biddle, Harrison, Ohio

Best deviled crabs in the 50's and 60's

CASABLANCA was a little bar/cafe down the street from the Colombia Restaurant back in the 60's. We traveled to tampa a couple times a year and that was always our first stop, grab a bag of deviled crabs. We moved to tampa for about 7 months, I attended the Catholic School in Ybor City when I was in the 8th grade. I ate deviled crabs every day for lunch and a couple nights a week for dinner,and I,m not joking. I went back in the early 70;s and the building was torn down. I'm looking for information, Did they move? go out of business ? is there a place around making the same type deviled crabs ? does anyone have the recipe? HELP
Thank You

Best crab in Tampa?

50 years ago, used to go to a place in Ybor City, right down the street from the Columbia restaurant, a little bar by the name of Casablanca had the best deviled crabs. We went there for years. Didn't go to FL for a couple years, went back and the building was torn down. that was probably 35 years ago. Anybody have any info on the casablanca, may not be the right spelling. THANK YOU
