perfectly cooked fish

n Nov 15, 2005 07:15 PM

Can anyone recommend a westside eatery (near Culver City, but willing to branch out), that knows how to cook fish properly, i.e. not overcooked.

    Not exactly Culver City, but Joe's on Abbot Kinney in Venice does great seafood. Joe is very picky about his ingredients, especially seafood - sources alot of it from the East coast and has it flown in fresh... alot of the lunch menu items are the the same as the dinner menu, but a little smaller and a great buy...

      Tlapazola Grill on Gateway in West LA [or the new one on Lincoln in MDR] cooks a GREAT fish.

          Delmonico's on Pico does mostly fish and has a large menu. Ask for one of the wood booths. Not gourmet like Water Grill but we consider it a reliable standby and they do treat fish properly.

            I just had yellowtail collar at Yabu, and it was melt in your mouth delicious. I think a lot of the Japanese restaurants don't usually overcook fish. I can't think of any off the top of my head right now though.

              I had pretty good fish at Locanda del Lago. But only been there once, so don't hold me to it ...

                We have had good success with properly cooked fish at Gulfstream in the Century City Mall across from their sister restaurant, Houston's.

                  I like the halibut in green sauce at La Serenata in WLA (Pico & Westwood).

                    Food was very good. Service was really bad. I won't go back for a long time. They totally rushed us through dinner, bringing the entree right on top of the soup.
