Soft shell crabs

Has anyone had or seen good soft shell crabs this season in Westchester or Putnam. Thanks

  1. Nice jumbos at Moomiji on Halstead Ave in Harrison. They fry them in a very light tempura batter and have them really sizzling on your plate in seconds after they leave the fryer. They are out of this world!!!

      My go-to place for SSC is June & Ho on Purchase St. in Rye.

        I do also very much enjoy June & Ho's seasonal soft shell sandwich served on their excellent house-made ciabatta roll. its a bit pricey at lunch at $9 but worth the splurge like most everything in that place.

    2. A friend just told me yesterday that Mt. Kisco Seafood is selling very good looking soft shells.

        do they carry blue crabs later in the summer? i've been unable to find them, particularly maryland blue crabs.

          The last time that I was in Maryland for crabs, the waitress said that they were in short supply and the crabhouse was serving Loisiana crabs.
