The "Young Crabmen" in North Philadelphia

  • 3

It's spring, and my thoughts have turned to steamed crabs. In fact, my thoughts have never turned away, since reading Jim Leff's Chowtour dispatch from last September. Does anyone know if they're back in business in the vicinity of North Taney and West Berks?

To refresh your memories, here's Jim's piece about it:

Fingers crossed! Pat
