    The lump crab cake is worth an earlier train from New York. And the oysters - often overlooked - are fat and super fresh.

    Skip the crab cakes and try a truly nostalgic taste of Balmore. The Baltimore "Coddie", know to some as a poor mans crab cake, is authentic Balmore hon!

    These chunky crab cakes were the best I ever had; they looked like huge meatballs. The big lumps of crabmeat were held together by minimal amounts of condiments, and were deliciously sweet.

    Go to Faidley's and have a crabcake and a beer. Preferably on a weekday. It's a little "rustic" down at Lexington Market, but it's the real deal.
