Anywhere on the North Shore serving soft shell crabs right now?

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!

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

      1. 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.

          La Stanza Diva in Woburn has them

        2. 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. :)

              The whole meal was awesome. Never been there before - thanks for the tip! Enjoy!

          1. 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.
