Fish Fests

1. Soft-Shell Crabs at Grand Central Oyster Bar

Grand Central Terminal, lower level 212-490-6650

Scooped up from the water before the blue crab’s new skin has time to harden, these Florida specimens come sautéed with garlic and butter for $29.95.

2. Shad at Savoy

70 Prince St., at Crosby St.; 212-219-8570

Through April 9, the rich-flavored, bony American herring and its prized roe are celebrated with a $55 four-course menu ($75 with wine). The panna cotta is, mercifully, shad-free.
