Softshell Crab Extravaganza

Kevin Cottle and Van Hurd
Jordan Caterers, Cheshire, CT

Our annual softshell crab dinner is always popular, and for good reason: the crave-worthy crustacean, which is available for only a few months a year, is featured in every savory course. Indulge your crabby cravings at a blowout feast helmed by talented chefs (and Hell’s Kitchen alums) Kevin Cottle and Van Hurd.
