Eli’s Table Adds Three New Seasonal Soft-Shell Crab Dishes to the Menu

April 3, 2018 § Leave a comment

Soft-Shell Crab for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Created by Executive Chef Steven Hampton

Like many Lowcountry residents and visitors, Eli’s Table Executive Chef Steve Hampton adores soft-shell crabs and finds seasonal inspiration when they become available in early spring and summer. “This time of year makes me think of barbecue, having brunch with friends, cooking with fresh local produce, and of course, soft-shell crabs. It was a combination of all of these things that provided the inspiration for each of these new soft-shell crab menu items,” says Hampton.

For breakfast, served daily from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. look for his Soft-Shell Crab Benedict with Texas toast, fried soft-shell crab, poached eggs, Cajun hollandaise and breakfast potatoes or grits ($17). For lunch, served daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., try a Smoked BBQ Soft-Shell Crab Sammy on a toasted croissant with house smoked BBQ sauce and pommes frites ($17). For dinner, served daily from 5 p.m. – until, Hampton dresses things up even more with an elegant Pan Seared Soft-Shell Provencal served with a sweet corn puree, black olives, roasted tomatoes, fried capers, grilled ramps and a white wine butter sauce ($38).

The soft-shell dishes made their debut on the menu on April 2 and will be available throughout soft-shell crab season.
