  1. if you need to stay in DC, probably C.F. folks at lunchtime

      1. Oceanaire's are extremely good, though I haven't had the ones at the Prime Rib. Market Lunch crabcake is also good.

        1. re: CMACDC

          thanks for the tips. have eaten oceanaire before. is there any good non-chain spots?

        2. Maine Street Avenue fish market at the Captain White's stand

          1. Surpisingly enough, Oohs and Aahs has a damn good c.c.

            1. Just came from dinner at Ceiba - surprisingly, their crab cake entree was quite good. Two crab cakes, little or no filler, nice spices.

              1. The Market Lunch at Eastern Market (on a roll with cole slaw -- fabulous) and Kinkead's with the mustard creme fraiche. Have never had any better in this area.

                1. I agree. With all of you.

                  Current emotion: hungry.
