06 Nov Woody’s Bar & Grill in Dewey Beach DE
I am a crab cake snob of the first order. Growing up with access to the best blue claw crabs in the world in Southern Delaware and having a Grandmother and Mother that can cook the pants off of just about anyone out there has made me a snob. Our weekend ritual upon arrival at the Rehoboth house was to head out to empty the crab traps and get them on the stove. I could pick a crab like a pro when I was two years old. Having had crab in every form imaginable, I have a deep and abiding love for crab cakes. Leave off the filler and bread crumbs – if I can’t taste CRAB … REAL LUMP CRAB MEAT then you are wasting my time.
Visiting Southern Delaware for the first time in 20 years, rumor had it that a new (to me) place called Woody’s Bar and Grill had the best crab cakes going. AND they were featured on the travel channel for these incredible crab cakes. I was skeptical. Could they be that good? Could they stand up to MY crab cakes which I think are pretty darn good?
