For soft shell crab lovers only - Mr. Ed's

Nirvana! I just returned from a meal at my favorite local neighborhood restaurant, Mr. Ed's on Live Oak St. in Metairie. They had several soft shell crab specialties tonight and I had the #2, a stuffed soft shell topped with a fried soft shell topped with a crawfish cream sauce. Oh my stars! This was a taste explosion of epic proportions. An absolutely perfect combination perfectly executed. I never believed any dish could top Mandina's soft shell crab almondine (when done right), but this is the best I have ever had. If you are an afficiando of soft shells, hie thee hence. It will not last much longer. Kudos to the chef!
