Looking for a new dining experience on the east side of town? Steve Carpenter recently opened Phat Crab in Carillon Beach town center and requested the oil and cold wax art of Lori Drew to complete the laid-back atmosphere of his newest restaurant. “What better way to offer a special treat to the community than to mix local art and fine dining,” said Drew. Twenty-three new works adorn the walls and all are for sale. “I am honored to be a part of this new venture, adding a delightful spark of enthusiasm to a great little town center.”Phat Crab is open from 5-10 p.m. every day except Wednesdays.
