Sweet Sweet Soft Shells in the River City

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.
