Hazel’s has kicked off its seasonal “Eastern Shore” menu introducing many new items, including fresh caught blue crab. Blue crabs at Hazel’s are served up just as you’d find them on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay – sold by the half dozen or dozen, and ranging in size from medium to jumbo – depending on what’s available each day. The fried soft shell crab sandwiches features a whole crab with a light crunchy texture that gives way to sweet, buttery crab meat. Perfect for sharing, the fresh seafood tower is assembled with peel-and-eat-shrimp, crab legs, tinned fish and available in varying sizes.Hazel’s Eastern Shore menu is available through the end of June.  Hazel’s, 1 Peabody Street, Birmingham,
