Eden's Landing

Eden's Landing is the bar/restaurant located inside the BWI Doubletree, serving contemporary American cuisine with a twist.  When traveling to new places, either for business or pleasure, the hotel restaurant can be a very convenient choice when it comes to dinner (especially if you don't have transportation).  Maybe after lugging the kids around the harbor all day, you don't quite feel like trying to figure out where else to go.  But you're in Maryland, and it becomes that unspoken tradition to have some crab cakes!  Are the ones at Eden's Landing worth trying?  Read along and find out!

G&M Restaurant

Ah, the infamous G&M.  You can't start any crab cake discussion without any mention of them, most often being pitted against Faidley's.  G&M has been around since 1972, churning out their crab cakes to high praises and accolades ever since.  The CCR has personally been eating G&M for years.  So in the great crab cake war, how does G&M stand out amongst the others?  Click on through to find out!

Luminous is the hotel bar/restaurant located at the Westin BWI.  Usually hotel restaurants can be hit or miss, but the Westin name sort of carries along some cred for being better quality than your average Courtyard.  And when you walk into the lobby, you certainly get that from the alure of the decor to the attention to detail.  And while purusing the menu trying to see if it shall be here that you dine, or the Bob Evans down the street, your eyes happen to notice the crab cakes.  You're probably here on business, which begs the question if you should get your crab cake fix here, or find somewhere else.  Well look no further!  Read on and see for yourself....
