It’s an awesome season for soft shell crabs this year in Richmond, VA. Here are the few places I’ve had them and enjoyed them immensely.
Pasture — My first soft shells of the season. Get the roasted fingerling potatoes with duck fat.
Mekong — You can choose between tamarind or sesame ginger. I had no idea what to say when offered the choice. Server recommended sesame ginger to my delight.
The Blue Goat — Chef LaCivita was serving these last weekend. So good!
The Roosevelt — Anything from Chef Gregory is a good idea. Sadly, I neglected to get a picture.
