Rockefeller, the richest American at the time, because its sauce carried so much richness. The dish has been remade, deconstructed and adapted much over the many decades since. Capt. Dave’s Dockside in Murrells Inlet serves up a version on a flatbread. The recipe is below.

Johnny D’s, in Central Myrtle Beach, and its chef, Jamie Saunders, are breakfast legends. While the restaurant may be known for its sweets (hello, pound cake French toast!), its savory is just as nice. The inventive crab cakes benedict perhaps intrigues more than anything else on the sprawling menu. It's chock full of interesting tastes and delightful decadence. Chef Jamie graciously agreed to share his recipe for the grilled crab cake, which you can eat plain, as a sandwich or “benedict” as he does. Grilled Crab Cakes ½ to ¾ cup Panko…
