I'm hoping not to have to go into Boston - figure someone up on the North Shore must be serving now - any tips? Thanks a bunch!

    Legal Seafood has a softshell crab appetizer as this week's special.

      I think bistro 5 in medford has something going on - I don't see anything on their website, though, so perhaps you should call first.

        Thanks everyone - went to Bistro 5 tonight and had excellent panko and mustard seed crusted soft shell crab with ancho chile remoulade, pickled ramps and frisee. Very Very good, craving satisfied. :)

          Just being a total wise guy but: You're on the North Shore dang it. No soft shells for you!

          Eat some fried clams for gosh sake! Kidding, really, just kidding.
