Looking for a restaurant with a great seafood tower for a birthday.
Ocean Ave. Seafood in Santa Monica does some nice towers starting at $35 and going up to
their $135 " The Grand" that includes 15 Oysters, 6 Clams, 8 Crab “Nuggets”, 16 Jumbo Shrimp, 20 Black Mussels, 11⁄4 lb Lobster, 2 lb Dungeness Crab, and 1 Sea Urchin. I'm hungry already.
Ocean Avenue Seafood
1401 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401
and, although, off-topic,
at happy hour (4-6pm weekdays) ocean avenue seafood offers an oyster platter of 6 great west coast oysters WITH a flight of three 2-z portions of wine for ~$17.(i.e a total of 6 oz of wine)
without the wine, the oysters are offered at $1.75 each during happy hour.
last wednesday i was there and had both the oyster platter and a platter of 6 oysters during happy hour and was well-pleased with the offerings.
they also serve a good-quality warm sour dough bread. . .
Paradise Cove does a tower, the food there in general isn't great, but it's right on the beach and the best location hands down!
