Soft shells with shoshito and honey at Stateside
We here at Foobooz World Headquarters have a soft spot for soft shell crabs. Some might get bummed out by the thought of biting through a shell, devouring a whole animal and all that. But us, we love the idea of crabby taste without the hustle or frustration of shucking anything. And softshell season is officially upon us. The delicious creatures have been showing up on more menus around town over recent days.
Here are where we’ve spotted soft shell crabs »

Saturday was the Flavors of the Avenue on East Passyunk and it served as the first chance many people have had to try the food of Joncarl Lachman and his upcoming NOORD. Lachman was serving up a mini-herring sandwich (pictured above) with cucumber and pickled onion. Lachman told us the sandwich is the Dutch equivalent to the hot dog. And after one tour around the twenty-five restaurant strong festival, we found ourselves back in front of NOORD’s stand and couldn’t help but get another bite.
NOORD is aiming to open on or near Wednesday, May 8th. NOORD is at 1046 Tasker Street, just off of the singing fountain, across from Fond.

Native Philadelphian Johncarl Lachman is coming home to Philadelphia to open Noord, a BYOB on East Passyunk Avenue. Tuesday night, Samuel Sherman, executive director of the East Passyunk Revitalization Corporation gave members of the media a preview of the Noord space. It still looks very raw inside but Sherman asures us that the 40-plus-seat restaurant with open kitchen will be ready to open the first week of May.
The design of the restaurant will be slightly reminiscent of Fond’s redo (especially the exterior), also an East Passyunk Revitalization project but will feature a large communal table down the middle of restaurant. Lachman will cook and interact with guests from Noord’s open kitchen. Outdoor seating will also be available.

Joncarl Lachman is coming home to Philadelphia and opening Noord, a Dutch BYOB on Passyunk Avenue. Lachman had originally considered Winkel for the name but as he told the Passyunk Post, ”No one was loving the Winkel name (except me),”
The restaurant will be located at 1046 Tasker Street, opposite the upcoming new location of Fond. Fond is aiming to open in its new space by Thanksgiving.
