Where to get blue crab or golden crab?

culinarynomad Mar 26, 2010 09:08 AM

Don't get me wrong: I love stone crabs. But when stone crabs go out of season, where do you go to eat Florida's other crabs, like the blue and the golden? Which variety do you prefer?

    I love blues more that stone crabs.

      Thanks, 2top. I did know about Rustic Inn; they've been around forever. ;)

      Where do you buy crab that you cook at home, or do you?

        A few days ago Altamare on South Beach tweeted that they had brought in 50 lbs of golden crab. I think they have it pretty regularly.

          Anyone know Seafood Market in Broward / Palm Beach where I can get truly jumbo live blue crabs (male "whales" over 6" wide)?

          I love boiling up my own crab feast but the small and mediums you mostly see around are just a little too much work for what you "net" (NPI).
