Fancy crab cakes with an interesting twist
I recently got an e-mail from the managing editor of Go, which is AirTran Airway's inflight mag. She wanted me to help make up a list of five restaurants in Baltimore that offer "fancy crab cakes that put an interesting twist on this local dish."
I didn't explain to her that most restaurants here feel that you don't mess with a classic, but it did occur to me that I should steal the idea for next week's Top 10 Tuesday. Then if she wants to steal from our list, she can -- as long as she credits Dining@Large and publishes the URL, thus bringing in more readers. ...
However, it's not as easy as it seems. Off the top of my head I came up with three examples. I need seven more, which I can probably get by going through the archives and also asking you folks. (Have you noticed how I've bowed to pressure and no longer address you as "guys," the way I would if I were talking to you?)
Remember, DO NOT TELL ME WHERE YOU CAN GET THE BEST CRAB CAKE. These have to be fancy crab cakes, whatever that means, with some interesting twist. Let's get started.
