Blue Crab in Fairfield/Westchester County???

Hey all,

I'm looking for a place that serves blue crab. Not king crab legs, stone crab claws or any of the other variations. REAL crabs! I have a hankering for some Maryland blues, but can't get down to Bawlmer so I'm hoping to find a place in Westchester or Fairfield.

You'd think the Crab Shell would, but that is the one thing they *don't* have on there menu... ridiculous.

Anyone know of one?

    1. what are the differences between blue crabs and soft shell crabs?....they look pretty similar to me.....

        Soft shell crabs are blue crabs that have shed their shell during a growth cycle. What the OP is talking about are hard shell blue crabs, that you have to crack open like a lobster to eat. Same critter.
