Soft-shell crabs are a rare delicacy on menus around town, popping up for a short season. Crab fans, check out these restaurants where soft-shell sightings have occurred so far this season to see where you may be able to snag a treat. (Note that these specials are fleeting; you won't necessarily be able to order these particular dishes, but this is meant to guide you to restaurants that have been known to go crab-crazy. Contact the restaurants directly to confirm availability.)
We will be looking out for soft-shell crab throughout the season and will update this ap periodically. Please send any intel our way.
