Any restaurants w/ a decent Maryland Crab Cake?

I used to hate crab cakes growing up in CA. But then I moved to Maryland for a year and realized that I just hated California crab cakes! Now that I am back, I miss having nice big Maryland style crab cakes. One without any fillers, no onions, peppers, herbs, or other gunk to mess up the taste of pure lump crabmeat and the lightest glob of mayo mixture just to keep it together. I keep seeing "Maryland crab cakes" in restaurants, only to order it and be majorly disappointed when I bite in. Is there such a thing out here? A pure, unadulterated crabcake?

I did see a thread on cooking them at home - but I've messed up boiling water before, so making them myself is not an option.
