Gaucho Grill

This Argentinean eatery mixes juicy jumbo crab with a bit of lobster and tops the resultant golden-brown crusted disk with a Dijon honey mustard sauce. There’s also a decent crab cake burger (served at lunch only) with lettuce, tomato, Bermuda onions, and topped with a tangy tartar sauce.

Sunset Cove

A classic take on the crab cake, Sunset Cove’s succulent creation is pan-seared jumbo lump crabmeat paired with chipotle remoulade and house-made corn relish. And continuing on the subject of classic, enjoy the view from the main dining room and terrace of the Hudson River and Tappan Zee.
