Crab Cake Detour On The Drive Bet NY & MD
I am planning a quick trip to the Bethesda area from NYC in late September, and I am hoping to find a place or places along the drive to stop for delicious lump crab cakes.
I welcome your suggestions.
Edit for more information:
This is going to be a very quick trip. I will be leaving NYC a Friday afternoon and returning that Saturday late afternoon/early evening.
I am not familiar with the drive to know which "best crab cake" place is accessible as a stop along the way. Also I would need to find a place open in the evening.
Check the recent thread on "best crab cake". A number of those places are on the east side of the Baltimore metro, not too far off of I-95 north. Enjoy!
What day of the week is your roadtrip? If you check the boards for crabcakes recs, many of the suggested places are closed on Sunday.
"I will be leaving NYC a Friday afternoon and returning that Saturday late afternoon/early evening. "
Faidley's will be closed both coming and going.
I don't know what's available along I-95 north of Baltimore, but south of Baltimore along I-95, I would probably go with Gunnings:
7304 PARKWAY DRIVE
HANOVER, MD 21076
Gunnings isn't the best place for crabcakes, but the best for the general area. Better than G&M, which someone is sure to suggest.
(For great crabcakes, my choices would be Faidley's, Jerry's in Lanham, and the Annapolis Seafood Market.)
