Restaurants in Maryland

Maryland crab cakes, made with big hunks of lump crab meat, are to ordinary crab cakes what Rogue River Blue Cheese is to Velveeta. There’s really no comparison; and at Maryland’s best purveyors of crab cakes, they are priced accordingly. When you’ve savored the silky luxe of a hunky one, you know that no price is too high. The other famous way to enjoy the region’s blue crab is at a crab feast, where tablecloths are newspaper and utensils are mallets and picks. In addition to its bounty of Chesapeake Bay seafood, Maryland’s signature dishes include St. Mary’s County stuffed ham in which peppery greens complement sweet pigmeat and multi-layered Smith Island cake from one of the two inhabited islands in Chesapeake Bay.
