Amazing Crab Cakes Make for an Amazing Moment

image001Friday afternoons, Chef Edwin “Zeus” Harmon of Explorers Restaurant at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore has been transforming the hotel’s library into a tiny kitchen, drawing guests into the reading room as the scent of his famous crab cakes wafts into the lobby. It’s an amazing moment, to follow your nose into the book-lined corner and find Zeus forming the little patties and frying them up in a pan. He, of course, invites you taste, and then recommends you visit Explorers for more, preferably paired with a pleasant Chardonnay or Sauvignon blanc from the well-curated wine list. 

You can read more about Sonesta’s “Amazing Moments in the accompanying article. In the meantime, Zeus is happy to bring his recipe to you:
