The Dreaded Crab Cake Question
I'm feeling a little wild and crazy today, so I've decided to tackle the Dreaded Crab Cake Question. As you can imagine, any restaurant critic in Maryland is constantly asked where to find the best crab cake. This isn't a question that's easy to answer.
Do you like crab cakes that are nothing more than lump crab meat ? Or is the right filler important? How about seasoning? Do you like them broiled or do you think a true crab cake has to be fried, even if it isn't so good for you?
The other problem is that I may have been to the restaurant that has the best crab cake, in fact I probably have because I've been to so many, but not ordered the crab cake. It's too boring to describe crab cakes week after week in reviews.
All I'm asking of you is...

...if you want to nominate a crab cake, tell me why it's so good.
I haven't had much luck coming up with ten distinct pumpkin dishes (although some of the ones readers have described sound mouthwatering), so I'm going to make next Tuesday's Top Ten the area's best crab cakes.
And then I'm going to duck.
