Soft-shelled crabs?

Any soft-shelled crab to be found this time of year in Chicago?

  1. I've seen them on the menu at Le Bouchon: http://www.dirksfish.com/http:/ and they're probably available at many other high end restaurants.

    If you're thinking of cooking the at home Dirk's Fish: http://www.dirksfish.com/http:/ is sure to have them.

    1. Just had them at Shaw's Crab House last week in the Oyster Bar. Also, Isaacson & Stein carries them in season - beautiful hotel-sized.
