Soft Shell Crab suggestions

A friend asked me this when I checked in at New Rod Dee and I was eating their special (I got it with garlic sauce, good, too much soy sauce, but good.)
I see Towne has one for 17 bucks, but other options? Neptune? For some reason I don't order it much even though it's really great.
And if anyone knows a Thai place that does a cocount crab curry on rice that woud be fantastic.
Wow this is the first post I'm doing since the redesign and the "What is this" graphic is totally misaligned.
It's an appetizer (One crab, cut into four pieces), rather than a main dish, but I had a truly delectable, perfectly cooked, tempura soft-shell crab at Toraya (Mass. Ave, Arlington) last night.
I was born in MA, but spent ages 8 to 16 in Maryland. Funny that the whole time I was down there, I craved really fresh lobster, but now dream of blue crab.

had some live salt-and-pepper soft shell crabs (blackboard special) at Dumpling Cafe (Chinatown). earlier in the season than i expected, maybe that's why they weren't as large and juicy as some. batter was a bit clumsy and overly salty, but it was nice to get a taste after a long winter.
