Editorial Review

The Food section rated this restaurant's crab cake for a July 2009 story about the area's best.

Volume is the first word that comes to mind, especially as you watch double-breasted platters with a full pound of crab cakes whoosh by while you wait. Ninety percent of the customers who fill this 299-seat restaurant order the somewhat-secret-recipe, available-by-mail-order, award-winning behemoths. These crab cakes are broiled to an almost-souffled state and remain moist inside thanks to egg, mayonnaise, mustard, Old Bay, Worcestershire sauce and a smattering of fresh bread crumbs. They deliver the full-on taste of sweet crab (Venezuelan), with classic flavor. Hard to beat.

Eight-ounce jumbo-lump crab cake, $16.95; two crab cakes, $24.50
