With the famous beach destinations lining the Delaware coast line, one would think that the best seafood dishes would be found in these tourist destinations.  That is not always the case as recently seen in the Wilmington Business Journal.  Once again, they awarded the Courtyard by Marriott Newark/University of Delaware as having the “Best Crab Cakes in the State of Delaware.” The short article that appeared in their December 30th issue read as follows:


“Back in June, we began a hunt for the best places in Delaware to get a crab cake. We saved the best for last because the crab cakes made by Chef Mark Chopko easily deserve the numerous awards they have received. The $26 crab cake dinner (two cakes and two sides) is available at the hotel’s bistro at the hotel off Del. 896. The bistro serves breakfast and dinner, no lunch. These gluten-free cakes, bigger than your palm, are made with all lump crab meat and a secret all natural binding ingredient.”

Congratulations to Chef Mark for once again receiving this notable distinction.  As many will attest, they truly are the best crab cakes you’ll ever have.
