Date night

My husband, Angelo, and I ditched the kids Saturday and had dinner at Koco’s Pub on Harford Road (don’t worry, they had pizza). I had never heard of the place. Angelo said it had been around for years and had won several “Best Crab Cake” recognitions, so I said, “Let’s go. I’ll be the judge of that.”

The crab cake was massive – 11 oz. – and very tasty. Just the right amount of Old Bay and hardly any breading. I was half way through it before I realized I didn’t have my usual tartar and cocktail sauces with it. I didn’t need it. It was very good. There was nothing special about the fries and coleslaw that came with mine. Clearly Koco’s crab cake was meant to be the highlight. I also had a very cold and slightly sweet Jack-O-Traveler pumpkin shandy to round out my meal. It was a perfect date!
