Soft Shell Crabs?
Anyone seen soft shell crabs on the menu yet?
Funny you should ask this because I just had some last night at Island Creek Oyster Bar. It was a relatively large crab fried tempura style over a bed of salad and avacado. The salad itself was forgettable, but the soft shell crab was incredible. $23 for the dish.

Dumpling Cafe had some on their blackboard specials list the other night, although they were small relative to the big juicy ones one typically sees later in the season. Their batter was a bit clumsy and salty, though.
