Looking for a great seafood merchant to buy excellent live lobsters. Better if closer to Hollywood, but willing to travel. Chinatown?

    John's in Dana Point has the wonderful (yes, better than the east coaster) CA spiney lobsters. They ain't got no claws, but don't let that stop ya!

      99 Ranch Market chain. Don't know what you mean by "best" or "excellent," but they're Maine lobsters, live and average price I've seen is $7.50/lb.
