The Stone Crab's claw is regenerative, meaning it'll grow back once it's been ripped off for your consumption. It's meaty, especially if you can find those big, honkin' claws (they usually come in sizes small to large), and a crab-eating experience all on its own. It's really pretty too: freckled, gradient coral, glossy black around the pinchers. These delicious claws are the jewelry of the sea, and in Philly, they're as rare as diamonds. But Stone Crab season is upon us, so here's a list of the three Philly restaurants carrying them.
