Jerry's Seafood Restaurant - Bowie

$$$$ ($25-$34)

Editorial Review

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

"Home of the Crab Bomb" is the motto of this no-frills family restaurant with three Maryland locations, and for good reason. The snow-white meat from Venezuela is picked on premises. The marble-size chunks are then tossed with a touch of mayonnaise and Old Bay, not a bread crumb in sight. The result is a seemingly impossible but awe-inspiring combination of delicacy and all-American satisfaction.

Jumbo-lump baby "bomb," $26 for six ounces, $34 for 10 ounces
