Open, coming-soon restaurants in Ventura County cover gamut from salads to seafood

OPEN: Ventura Crab N Spice serves shrimp, crab and/or other seafood by the pound, boiled with your choice of flavorings, spice levels and add-ons (hard-boiled quail eggs, anyone?). Plastic bibs and gloves are available — along with tins of Altoids to freshen one’s breath after the meal.

Ventura Crab N Spice opened Aug. 20 in the Telephone Road Plaza; owners Marlon Arsenal and Jerrico Reyes already have their eye on expanding into a neighboring space (4732 Telephone Road, Suite 5B, 805-535-4363, http://venturacrabnspice.com).
