I hear that softshell crabs are in season now. Can you recommend a good restaurant to sample a tasty crab dish in queens (flushing/woodside/sunnyside/LIC) or brooklyn (park slope/sunset park)?

      I had some two weeks ago sauteed in butter & garlic @ Piccola Venezia in Astoria.
      Three nice sized, plump and juicy bad boys.

        Love the softshell crab appetizer at Sripraphai.

          Even though it gets bashed a lot, I had wonderful softshells last year at Elias Corner in Queens.
