Any recos on where to get one not super upscale but more casual?

      ....Dont know anything about these places personally, but it's certainly somewhere to start. Maybe you could eat your way through all ten! Just the other day I had the soft shell crab sandwich at the Palm. Crunchy and delicious! Love those things :-)

        Had salt & pepper SSC at Great NY Noodletown two weeks ago, and one in a spicy mango sauce at New Malaysia the week before that, both great, but l think the New Malaysia one had the edge, flavor-wise.

          Jean Georges for lunch - the crunchy soft shell crab with sugar snap remoulade is delicious.
