Maryland crab cakes can be made all kinds of crab, but the blue crabs of Chesapeake Bay are the real deal. To honor this tradition on the Pacific coast, head directly for The Grill on the Alley, a top Beverly Hills establishment where you’ll be able to consume this taste treat at its best: moist and plump and swimming in butter with a lemon on the side to add as much or as little as you desire.

If you’re looking for a New York-style deli where the servers are sometimes fast (but extra efficient), head for Canter’s any time of the day or night. Indeed, this joint is jumping with diners for all hours and often who can’t put off dining on lox and bagels the likes of which are hardly ever served the right way on the Left Coast. You can depend on a winner of this dish at this Fairfax district mainstay, as you can other deli staples the likes of which are typically downed in the Big Apple. The pastrami and corned beef sandwiches are incredible, too.
Seasalt Fish Grill

For those who have thrilled to the table-side traditions of the northeast, New England clam chowder hits the spot like no other. So, if that’s the dish you are craving, head straight to Los Angeles’ Seasalt Fish Grill, located downtown and also a splash from the ocean in Santa Monica. Ask for the Fisherman’s Wharf Clam Chowder to be served the authentic version filled with baby clams or choose The Baja Seafood Chowder if you don’t mind mixing your clams with shrimp and other savory fish bits.
