      I dined at NY Noodletown and sampled its soft shell crabs for the first time about two weeks ago. They were pretty tasty!

        The ones we had last week at Perilla were phenomenal.

          Can anyone tell me how long the SSC season lasts? I am always excited about it but before I get my fill it seems to be over. This year I really plan to make it to NY Noodletown.

            Generally late August or early September. But, they are smaller and more expensive by then. May and June are the best months, I believe.

              NY Noodletown is always a favorite for salt baked ss crabs.
