Drink to That
The whole sassy crew at HotChocolate agrees there’s nothing finer than a chilled white with seafood, so look to a glass of crisp 2008 Koehler-Ruprecht pinot blanc ($15) to enhance the crab’s flavor.
In these parts, crab cakes are always a gamble. Mindy Segal’s sandwich hits the jackpot with its perfectly round patty that boasts a high crab-to-filler ratio, a spread of zesty giardiniera tartar sauce, and a housemade brioche bun gleaming with butter.
