Rating: ★★★★☆

12633117_10153926491913011_1505402208_oCapitol Hill Crab Cakes, which opened in November 2015, is a small seafood and soul food establishment located at 1243 Good Hope Rd SE in Historic Anacostia. The owner grew up on Capitol Hill, which explains the name. The place is a friendly neighborhood spot; when I was there, Business Beauties, a group that holds poetry and arts events to promote networking for local businesswomen, was collecting donations of cases of water for Flint, MI. It’s nothing fancy, 12656306_10153926491923011_1408545245_owith a few tables for eating in. At $15.99, the price of the jumbo lump crab cakes was pretty steep, but the crab cake was truly jumbo and almost entirely crab meat. It came with a side of tasty, seasoned fries. Other menu options include shrimp and grits, crab and grits, kale greens and crab fries. This is a solid spot for lunch if you’re in the Anacostia area. 12669750_10153926491898011_1612010397_o
