Faidley’s Baltimore, Maryland
Brooklyn is home to a couple of lobster roll joints and the great clam shack, Littleneck, but not every shellfish has been represented yet. Wouldn’t it be nice to have Baltimore’s Faidley’s pushing their softball-sized crabcakes right in our backyard? The original location is tucked into Lexington Market, which you might recognize as the maze of fried chicken from the episode of the Wire where McNulty sends his kids to trail Stringer Bell. It might not be the same, eating crabcakes in the safety of brownstone Brooklyn, but I wouldn't complain.
