best seafood place in LA??
My mom's birthday is next week and she prefers eating seafood over most other foods... any suggestions?? i'm a total food whore so i'm always perusing chowhound, yelp, blogs, etc. i've never been to water grill and have been meaning to go there since ages ago, but i've heard in countless reviews that the place hasn't been as good as when cimarusti was there.. i've been to providence and wasn't too impressed. any suggestions?? (btw, this is my first time posting- i just became a chowhounder a couple mins ago hehe :)
Welcome aboard. I my view, you've just mentioned the two best seafood places in town (Water Grill and Providence). Of the two, I like Providence better, but if you've already been and didn't like it, maybe you should give the Water Grill a try.
544 South Grand, Los Angeles, CA 90071
5955 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038
Eaten at Water Grill and it was amazing, though haven't wanted to spend the money on Providence yet, but will at some point.
A less expensive and quite delicious alternative is The Hungry Cat.
I have reviewed it at my blog. http://www.whaleofatale.net/wordpress...

Yes. Cimarusti left several years ago, and I've been since then. Have never had a barely satisfactory meal there, but the current menu (which is heavy on poaching and exotic spicing) isn't as appealing to me as Cimarusti's was. That's more a matter of personal taste, however.
