Soft Shell Crab Week
Soft Shell Crab Week, starting Friday, May 22nd and running through Sunday, May 31st is the mastermind of Brass Elephant chef Marcus Olson and the Downtown Partnership. Ten downtown area restaurants are each offering at least one soft shell crab dish during the week. Menus can be found here.
I'm thinking Brass Elephant's "Maryland Soft-Shell Crab & smoked Maryland Rockfish, Bamboo Shoots, Hearts of Palm, Sherry-Mustard Emulsion" sounds good, as does their "Maryland Soft-Shell Crab stuffed with Maryland Crab, Turnip, Turnip Greens, Tomato, Caramelized Onion, Red Bell Pepper Romesco." And Donna's fried soft shell crab "po boy" on a brioche roll with tomatoes, dill aioli and sweet potato fries sounds like a tasty choice as well.
