“Fresh soft shell crabs are a delicious seasonal treat and diners always look forward to their arrival,” said Will Kingery, co-owner of King’s Crab Shack. “They also are one of the biggest mysteries of the culinary world. So we decided to bring folks from the NC Coast who catch and shed soft shells and let our Winston-Salem diners visit with them and get answers straight from the horse’s mouth.
Everybody is invited. Soft shell crab sandwiches will be the featured entrée but other menu items will be available.
King’s Crab Shack and Oyster Bar opened last fall as the sister restaurant to Willow’s, also in Winston-Salem, which offers a diverse menu with daily specials of fresh fish and other seafood as available. Both are owned by Chef Will Kingery and Norb Cooper.
