Crab cakes are available as a sandwich served with lettuce, tomato, and caper remoulade on a toasted brioche bun, or as a single or double platter served with rice and vegetables. On the platter, remoulade is served on the side. If lemon is your thing, then you might want to ask for some.
While the description calls this a Maryland Crab Cake, it's certainly not Maryland style. The crab is mostly broken up, but packed tightly together with hardly any filler. Just enough mayonnaise, Dijon, bread, and egg to hold it all together, along with some spices.
This crab cake is outstanding! The crab is nice and sweet, and while the meat is broken up, it doesn't detract from the texture. The binder has a bready flavor to it, followed up by the Dijon. You get a little bit of pepper in the mix, but none of the supporting ingredients are overpowering, and are in fact perfectly balanced. The crab flavor comes through, but there is enough of a flavor profile to not let this cake get boring. If you can pull yourself away from the other tasty treats on the menu, this is a definite must try!
