Where can I get Crabcakes in New York City?

My mom loves crabcakes, and my daughter and I want to take her for a nice dinner. We will travel anywhere by cab. We are going on a tuesday or thursday evening. Any suggestions? Willing to spend 50-60 pp.

Thank You

  1. Le Gigot on Cornelia Street has some of the best crabcakes I have ever eaten. They are on the menu as an appetizer but they can be a main as well. The restaurant is small...not lots of room between tables but quite charming. They have great oysters and a nicely varied menu.

      I've always like the crabcakes at The Redeye Grill on 7th (around 56th).

        Must definitely agree with erica-best crabcakes can be had at Le Gigot! I just went there Saturday-how funny that I see it on this list as best crabcakes because our whole table felt the same way!!!

        1. DH thinks the crabcakes at Moran's (chelsea) are excellent, meaty and flavorful. And it's a lovely atmosphere.

          1. i recenlty had a fabulous crab cake at Roy's. I know there's an appetizer, but not sure if there's more than that... check it out.

            1. The only non-fishy tasting crabcakes I've had in the city were many years ago at the 21 Club.
