It’s a pizzeria. Nothing special. There are about 1,000,000 of these all over the country. And, to be honest, I have no idea if their pizza is even edible. It doesn’t matter, because I will never order it. But…their crab cakes are the best I have ever eaten, and I eat a lot of crab cakes. My wife loves them, but has the appetite of a small bird, so I usually get to finish hers whenever she orders them.
I realize that Maryland is famous for its crab, and it isn’t surprising that many eating establishments in this fair state would have crab on the menu, but it is just a little unexpected that the finest example of an often pedestrian dish would be found in an unassuming pizzeria in a strip mall just off the interstate. However, in the grand scheme of things, I would much prefer to know where to go for the pinnacle of the crab-caker’s art, rather than wander the earth, forever seeking the perfect rendition of what should be, but rarely is, a simple dish. And I should know, because I make a mean crab cake; just not as good as this one.
