Executive Chef Steve Haug of Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House and Executive Chef Horacio Degante of Sullivan’s Steakhouse and are pleased to announce the opening of the highly anticipated Stone Crab Claw Season. From October 17 until May 15, this seasonal delicacy will be offered at Sullivan’s Steakhouse and Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House in Houston, based on availability. The sweet, firm crab claw meat is not widely available, only appearing on the menus of select restaurants outside of their native Florida.
Stone crab claws are flown fresh from the Florida Keys, one of the only regions where they are available. Once harvested, the claws are cooked fresh on the boat, then promptly chilled – never frozen – and then flown fresh to the restaurants. Guests may share claws with their table as an appetizer, enjoy them as their main entree or even add them as an accompaniment to the wide variety of steak and seafood items. Claws are cracked fresh to order and are served with a traditional Dijon sauce and fresh hot towels.
“Year after year our guests anticipate stone crab claw season and we are thrilled for them to indulge in these gems of the sea,” said Horacio Degante, Executive Chef of Sullivan’s Steakhouse.
“The stone crab claws are a great complement to our prime steaks and something our guests savor every year,” added Steve Haug, Executive Chef of Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House.
Stone crab claws are considered highly sustainable, as one claw is harvested from the crabs and the crab is then returned to the sea so it can regenerate the claw. Additionally, claws must be at least 2.75 inches long to be harvested and claws cannot be taken from egg-bearing females.
