This current spiny lobster season is going to end March 16th...my current favorite restaurant serving this tasty bug is the Santa Barbara Shellfish Co. at the end of Santa Barbara's Sterns Wharf. As of today, their market price is $32/lb. and they have spiny's weighing up to 4 lbs. Does anyone know of any restaurant in the LA or SFV area that also has fresh, live spiny lobsters?

The Lobster in Santa Monica serves them. Crazy prices right now. When I called earlier in the week, they were charging $49/lb. I also checked at Santa Monica Seafood on Wilshire and they didn't have any in stock to purchase for home cooking. They said to expect them in around November 1.
Lobster season just opened. Usually opens the first weekend in October. Maybe prices will drop as the season progresses.
