The Skinny: It was a dilemma anyone would envy: we were hungry, but not starving.
Did we want to gorge ourselves on a big entrée or keep things light?
Fortunately, our excellent server Traci steered us to the crab cake, and we opted for the sandwich.
The cake was packed with large bits of lump crab and was held together with minimal binders. The restaurant does not use a lot of seasoning in the crab cake, but it doesn’t need to when the Key lime aioli served on the side delivers the right mix of tang and zing. The only thing that would have made it better? A perfectly toasted roll.
