Fried Crab Balls, Lavo

These bar bites are more than a mouthful. Two golf ball-size crab cakes are crunchy and golden on the outside, chock-full of sweet meat within, while bits of bell pepper cut through the richness. Try them with a palate-cleansing glass of Prosecco during the restaurant’s Bubbles & Balls happy hour (4:30-7 p.m. daily), and you have the perfect pre-game meal before hitting the club.
