Soft Shell Crabs Get a New Crust

t’s soft-shell crab season, and you can find the little critters everywhere, even the most unlikely of places.

Everyone’s favorite summertime exhibitionist sheds its old crust and finds a new one on Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffè’s soft-shell crab pizza ($29-$47).

This white pizza forgoes the pomodoro sauce and wears a thin veil of red onions, capers, tomatoes.

Haricots verts are tossed in a hot, citrusy beurre blanc sauce with almonds and parsley, then added for a sea of different textures, colors and flavors.

The flash-fried streaker is proudly displayed like a centerpiece, garnering ooh’s and aah’s all around.  Download the full menu here.
