Crab Cakes in DC or Alexandria
I have a friend coming to town who remembers having the best crab cakes ever when he was here in the 80s (yeah a long time ago). Anyway, can anyone recommend places in either Old Town or downtown DC? I do not eat crab, so I have no clue.
IMO, the best crabcake sandwich in the city is at Market Lunch at eastern market.

I still would rec CF Folks in general but their crab cake isn't what it used to be. 12-18 months ago the old chef left. I went nearly a year ago for a crab cake and while they still served it, it was off the menu (they were actually overjoyed somebody ordered one). It was not good, and I used to call theirs among the best in DC.
I have, however, gone a couple of times since and ordered specials, and have never been let down on that front.
