The biggest hit at the Taste of Arlington event this past Sunday was the Carlyle restaurant’s crab cake sandwich. There are many good crab cakes to be had in and around the Washington, DC area — this was the first time we had those made by Carlyle. One of our favorite crab cakes is made at Clyde’s. Clyde’s has two versions of crab cake — the less expensive bar food version and the premium version full of lump crab meat. For our older son’s rehearsal dinner at Clyde’s of Tysons Corner a few years ago we chose the chicken (better than the rubber chicken of most conferences) and the premium crab cakes. The crab cakes were a big success. We will be heading to Ocean City next week for a few days — I think we may be chowing down a crab cake or two.
