        Phil,
        It's not going to be pretty and may turn her against what we love and can pick up at most any crab joint or restaraunt.

        Out of our region, crabcakes are inferior but most especially in the Midwest. I travel extensively around the country and have learned just not to order items that aren't local. And crabcakes are one of those items I don't dare order outside the Chesapeake region. In most scenarios the crabcakes lack the jumbo lump that we use. Sometimes you'll find shrimp or artificial crab in them. They usually are made with lots of filler usually because jumbo is hard to get or costs to much, sometimes involving peppers, and usually covered in various sauces to cover them up.

        But have her try the Pear Tree in Bevier (N of Columbia & W of Macon), it's a little drive but worth it. They have a lightly deep fried lobster that you have to try at least once (and more since it will grow on you). I recommned calling for reservations.

          I appreciate the guidance, and will take it
          The Pear Tree, with fried lobster, sounds worth exploring.
          Your description of midwestern crabcakes brought a shudder. No need to say more, I'm convinced.
          Thanks for filling me in.

            Having accepted the fact that prospects for decent crabcakes there are dismal,are there any possibilities within driving distance?

              Not very likely. Why not just order some and get it over with?

                Only place that I know of in Columbia would be of course Red Lobster. Have her try the BBQ at Buckinghams. It's off one of the exits. If there is a Bonefish Grille in St. Louis, that might be worth a drive. Not sure what else is available in St. Louis.

                  Try Bristol's Seafood Grill in either OFallon or Creve Couer; a short 90 minute drive from Columbia. Bristol's makes them with real lump crabmeat, a rarity in these landlocked parts. Always good. Closest thing I've had to real Maryland crabcakes, and I used to go to Baltimore quite a bit on business.

                    Thanks for the lead on Bristol's. Your description sounds like what she is seeking.

                      She found one.
                      It is actually in Columbia.
                      It is called Classy's and is on Broadway
                      The crabcakes have very little breading or filler, a bit of mustard, and no red or green pepper toovercome the delicate crab. It is served with a meuniere sauce

                        Phil-hope the Columbia crabcakes pan out-no pun intended. I'm from St. Louis, living in Texas since 1989 and love crabcakes. Can't seem to get a decent one here in The Woodlands--north of Houston. Usually resort to buying top dollar lump and making them at home. I remember Bristols as a great date place hubby and I went to--maybe you can make a road trip for a romantic weekend!

                          Will try Bishops when I am out there. She has Classys to falll back on for now.
                          Thanks for the suggestion.
