I just love Crab Cakes and I used to have some in SFO and since I moved to LA, would like to know where I can get real good crab cakes here!

Saw an old post regarding Maryland crab cakes and I'm wondering how many kinds of crab cakes there are!! Also, someone mentioned,
-- TRAXX in Union Station
-- A PLACE FOR STEAKS in Burbank

Thanks in advance!

      My favorite crab cake is found at The Hump (Santa Monica Airport). So much crab, and sometimes topped with a piece of hamachi. Perfect.

      Water Grill (pretty much the only thing I liked on their menu)

      Restaurant at the Getty Center
