Fried Oysters, anybody?
Where in the LA area (westside, Hollywood, downtown?) can you get good fried oysters? I love oysters, but I'm pregnant and can't eat raw oysters for another 5+ months (so sad). My birthday is tomorrow. I thought The Water Grill downtown would be a sure thing, but they don't have fried oysters on the menu. We had some leads on divey soul food joints with fry oysters, but nothing upscale and appropriate for a birthday dinner.
Just curious. Any help is appreciated!

The Water Grill is a great place and very friendly. I'd explain the situation to them and see if they won't help out a pregnant birthday girl by frying up a mess of oysters for you. In any case, happy birthday!
I don't know if you would find it birthday appropriate although I'm taking my duaghter there Sunday for her 20th birthday, but the deep fried oysters at Hop Li on Alpine St. in Chinatown are wonderful as is the rest of their food. There is always back and forth debate on this restaurant on this board but I have never been disappointed.
Happy B-Day, LDWmoorestreet!
Check out The Tar Pit. Upscale locale, nice vibe. Cool meet-up for a birthday celebration. Live entertainment. Fried oysters on the menu. Haven’t tried them yet but they should be good with Mark Peel (Campanile) at the helm.

Another option is Gulfstream. The fried oysters were amazing at the Newport Beach location, perhaps a bit far for your party. I understand that the one in Century City features the same menu. The crab cakes and the wild rice salad are sure bets as well if available there. Again, a very cool, upscale venue.
