There are soft-shells coming out of Florida already, but not a ton and not great quality. Call around to the usual suspects and see who has them at the moment as availability seems to be day-by-day at this point.

Had the soft shells w asparagus and ramps today at Union Square Cafe. The ramps were conspicuously missing, but it was a delicious nonetheless. Two meaty nice sized crabs.

The Breslin has had them on special a couple nights, from what I've observed on Twitter. Freemans had them one night too.
