Crab Cake @ Mr. B’s Bistro
I have never had better crab cakes than the ones served at Mr. B’s. The idea is simple: enormous lumps of local blue crab are held together with a bare minimum of other ingredients. It gets a thin crust of bread crumbs before it’s toasted in butter in a hot pan. A bit of ravigote sauce adds what little tang is needed. Another great dish from a restaurant that does the standards better than any other restaurant.
