Neptunes Net Like in L.A., Santa Monica area?
I am looking for a very casual seafood place like Neptunes Net of the place in downtown L.A. on Central. Some good seafood, with fried shrimp, clam chowder, etc., nothing fancy, but closer to town. There used to a place years ago in the Marina in the Village, by El Torito. Woould appreciate the help, TIA
Not as broad an array of choices but the good folk at Santa Monica Seafood have the more than decent 10th Street Cafe (for the next couple of months anyway, 'til they start the remodel to move their store there--at which point, the Cafe, or a variation thereof, will reopen).
10th Street Cafe
1000 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA
There is Tusquellas seafood at the Farmers Market (3rd and Fairfax). They grill up whatever fresh seafood they have. Very fresh and basic. Sides are either rice or coleslaw. Can't tell you about the shellfish because I don't usually eat it.
Another place worth considering is Fish Grill on Beverly near La Brea. They grill up Snapper,
Sea Bass, Salmon etc. Very reasonable plus you get a choice of two sides with your order. Baked Potato, Israeli Salad, Rice, Caesar Salad, etc. No shellfish, it's an Orthodox place.
