    I would recommend Shaw's Crab House at 21 E. Hubbard if you are eating out or Dirk's Fish at 2070 N. Clybourn if you are staying home. Call Dirk's first at 773-404-3475 to make sure they are on hand. Shaw's does several very simple preparations where the crab is the star on the plate and Dirk's crabs are always alive when you buy them.
