Soft shell crabs landed on the lists of specials around Philadelphia in a big way over the weekend and will continue to do so in weeks to come. Since we’re such big fans of soft shell crabs, we’ve been dutifully tagging tweets about soft shells with the hashtag, #SoftShellsinPHL.

Matyson is going further than adding soft shells as a special, the Center City BYOB is offering a tasting menu this week that includes soft shell crabs in four different cuisines for $45.
