Crab Cakes in the Valley

zakiszak Apr 23, 2008 04:19 PM

Hi all

I've got a girlfriend with a hankering for crab cakes tonight who wants to go to California Pizza Kitchen, I suspect that we can do much better.

Any good tips for tasty crab cakes in the Sherman Oaks/Studio City area?

Thanks a ton

    Although quite a bit more pricey than CPK, Charlie G's in Tarzana has some pretty good crab cakes.

      CPK has crab cakes? I can't even imagine. I second Charlie G's. The crab cakes are excellent -- and so is their "Wedge".

        Just had the crabcakes at Woodranch. They are relatively new to the menu. The crabcakes were pretty good with no filler - 100% crab, or so I was told. I had the appetizer portion that consisted of 3 crabcakes for around $12.
