San Francisco Dungeness Crab Season Opens!

Melanie Wong | Nov 16, 2000 01:08 PM

The SF Dungeness Crab season opened yesterday, Nov. 15 and will go until the end of June 2001. The fleet was delayed a day with yesterday's storm, very few boats going out in rough weather. With blue skies today, we should have a bigger catch. How do you kick off the season in chowhound style?

I had some disappointing crab cakes at lunch yesterday, obviously from frozen meat. Then tried to order a Singapore-style black pepper crab for dinner --- sold out --- foiled again! I'm in search of fresh crab again tonight.
