Visitors seeking crab cakes, Majestic Cafe and other dining advice
We're hosting visitors from the mid west this weekend who are craving seafood, esp some great crab cakes... any ideas for NoVa or Georgetown/NW DC? nothing too fancy.
On another note -- anyone know when Majestic Cafe is set to open in Old Town and what the price range/style of food will be. We live in OT and love to stroll to dinner, but am so often disappointed by the restaurants (but open to suggestions....?).

The best crab cakes I've had so far in DC is at the Oceanaire restaurant. I've lived here for 10 years, and these by far were the best. The restaurant is expensive though, so if you aren't looking for that type of restaurant there are much cheaper places to go. McCormick and Shmicks also has excellent crabcakes.
