Kent Island Crab Cakes

Kent Island Crab Cakes is a mail order seafood company located in, where else, but Kent Island, MD. A family-run business since the early 1980's, Kent Island Crab Cakes strives to exclusively use Blue Crab meat from the Chesapeake Bay. While crab cakes are their main attraction, they offer much more than that. They also sell a wide variety of seafood delights, delicious soups (both the Vegetable Crab and Cream of Crab are excellent!), meats, and desserts. While we might get distracted by a Smith Island cake, we're here for the crab cakes. So we placed an order for our holiday dinner and invited the family over. Read on to find out what we thought!


RD's American Grill

Every now and again, the CCR likes to venture out past its normal territory to see how crab cakes are interpreted by our neighboring counties/states. On a recent trip to Lancaster, we happened upon a small roadside restaurant: RD's American Grill. Opened in 2013, RD's focuses on traditional American comfort food and BBQ. While slow cooked meats is usually one way to grab our attention, the inclusion of crab cakes on the menu is the clincher. So one night we decided to stop on by and check them out. Read on to see how crab cakes are done north of the Mason Dixon!


Loeb's NY Deli

Downtown Washington DC has lots of options for the lunchtime crowd. But what's more classic than eating at a kosher-style deli? Enter Loeb's NY Deli. Loeb's first opened in 1959 by Walter Loeb, in the location currently occupied by the Old Ebbitt Grill. In the 1970's, they moved to the US Export-Import Bank building, but was then forced to move a few doors down in 2012. You'll find everything you'd expect in a Jewish deli, along with our favorite, crab cakes! Read on to find out how they did!
