Food with crab in it. Need Recs

I am currently writing an article for Baltimore Metromix on crab related foods and would like to know of any restaurants/ bars/ cafes that have unique crab items on their menus (i.e crab ball, crab fluff, crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms etc.). Its a relatively open article and I would like to cover some interesting dishes. There are people who read this board that have been to place I haven't been yet. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate the suggestions.

  1. Jerry's Crab Bomb. Pretty much nothing but crab. Located in Lanham, Md.

    1. Edgewater Restaurant on Mayo Rd., off Rt 2 a couple of miles south of Annapolis. Best crab cake anywhere. It's a throwback to Anne arundel Co. in the 50's and 60's, the recipe hasn't changed.

      1. O'Donnell's Seafood Restaurant in Gaithersburg has Norfolk-style jumbo lump crab which is sauteed in butter and drizzled with tarragon vinegar.

        The crab imperial at The Prime Rib in DC is an unbelievable way to start any meal there.

        1. Crab omelet, w/ white cheese, dusted w/Old Bay, at Bayside Skillet, OC.

          1. I remember some interesting crab items on the Carroll's Creek menu last summer. I can't remember exactly what we ordered but I think one dish had an almost latin and asian flavor to it.
