Taking my mom to a matinee play at the Mark Taper to celebrate her birthday. Where's a good place for lunch first? Preferably California Cuisine, New American, or Sushi -- medium priced. Not cheap, not too pricy.
You probably have most of the ingredients on hand for these simple, elegant crab cakes; just make a quick run to the seafood market for fresh lump crabmeat. Toss together a bright, seasonal salad while the crab cakes chill.
