I need to buy some blue crab lump meat for the DC top chef premier next week. Anyone know where I can buy it in LA? Santa Monica seafood does not carry it. Ideas?

    I got pouches from whole foods recently.

      Have you checked with some of the downtown big seafood retail/wholesale businesses? LA Fish Company and International Marine Products spring to mind as possible sources.

        Surfas might have it, if not LA Fish.

              Fish King in Glendale used to carry it a few years ago. Fresh, too. Better call to check. SM Seafood doesn't have it by the pound, but they do have individual crab cakes for sale at about $6 each. They have two kinds, one's Dungennes and the other is made with Maryland Blue Crab. Have to say they're pretty good and it tastes like they even put a little Old Bay in the recipe.
