Farmers & Distillers is celebrating the end of spring and the start of summer with two soft-shell crab dishes.

That’s right. It is soft-shell crab season here in the nation’s capital. We all know our fine neighbors in Maryland are famous for their delicious crabs. Early in the season, those crabs are harvested at peak time and make for some of the region’s very best culinary offerings.

We are serving a soft-shell crab sandwich for $18 and an entrée for $30. Our Maryland soft-shell crabs are lightly battered and fried. The sandwich includes our famous bacon, lettuce and tomato, on a house-made bun, with a side of our tasty tartar sauce and choice of one of our crop sides. Our entrée includes two Maryland soft-shell crabs, served with a choice of two of our crop sides and our tasty house-made tartar sauce.

Both are delicious ways to celebrate this special time of year and will be available for a limited time only. So, scurry down to Mt Vernon Square for some tasty soft-shells. If possible, we recommend making a reservation.
