Any Menus with Soft Shell Crabs?

Or am I too early?

  1. 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.

      1. 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.

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

          1. NY Noodletown has them down in Chinatown. Expertly fried and something I look forward to every year
