Best Crab cake


Lexington Market, 203 N. Paca St.,, (410) 727-4898

No surprises here. Faidley’s has long-since cracked the code on the perfect crab cake—it involves huge hunks of delicious hand-picked meat, just the right amount of saltine-and-mayo-based filler, and a fryer (unless you request it broiled. Don’t.)—and they’ve left well-enough alone. Spend the $12.95 and get the big one (but skip the platter and head over to Berger’s for dessert). And thank god that Lexington Market is still just sketchy enough to keep some tourists at bay—if that place was in Fells Point, we’d be waiting for hours for a crab cake. But we would be waiting.
