Soft Shell Crabs for Lunch
Does anyone know where they are serving soft shell crabs for lunch? I've been having a craving and my old stand by place (Dearborn Oyster Place) has since closed.
I'd like to treat myself for lunch next week.
I work at Jackson and State and will need to fit it in within an hour so I guess nothing more than a 6-7 block walk in any directions.
I find soft-shells to be a bit of a crapshoot here in the Midwest, so I don't usually order them, but I did notice that Glenn's Diner, a good place for seafood in general, occasionally offers soft-shell po'boys on their chalkboard. Call first, tho, to make sure they've got 'em in house.

Shaw's has them on their menu right now: http://www.shawscrabhouse.com/chicago...
Not cheap but I've had them there before and they are very good. Of course it's about 8.5 blocks north of you so, technically, it's out of the requested radius.
