Where to get good Maryland Crabcakes in DC

bluedog Oct 13, 2009 08:01 AM

I am in DC from Wed Oct 14-Sat OCt 17, staying at the Marriott Wardman Park. Don't haev a car and due to a conference am really only free Wed for dinner and Sat at lunch. Anywhere I can eat good Maryland Cab Cakes in proximity to my hotel and/or via the Metro?

Don't have time to get to Baltimore (I would if the MARC trains ran on Sat, but apparently no such luck), unfortunately so DC suggestions only would be appreciated!

Phillips is out as my understanding is their crab comes from SE Asia....

    Old Ebbitt does a respectable crabcake. And Ollie's Trolly does a decent one as well, suprisingly. All lump, no filler.

      The Prime Rib makes a great crabcake

        It's a dive, but Oohhs and Aahhs broiled crabcake is my favorite right now. Has a nice, spicy kick. Across the street from the Cardozo/ U St. Metro stop.
