Best Cioppino in LA?

I know Cioppino is really an SF dish... still, I'm looking for it here in LA (and the closer to West LA, the better.)

Anyone have any suggestions, besides flying up to SF? I checked this earlier thread: ( ), but it's mostly old as dirt and mostly all about bouillabaisse. The only places that mentioned cioppino were mostly dead-ends:

- 26 Beach (checked the website; couldn't find it on the menu
) - Church and State (checked the website; couldn't find it on the menu)
- Gladstone's (checked the website; couldn't find it on the menu)
- Musso & Frank (checked the website; couldn't find it listed)
- Original Fish Co (Alamitos is unfortunately just too far to drive)

So... here's my query. Anyone have a place in LA they know of where I can go for cioppino? (And by the way, if I'm wrong about one of the above places, please do let me know...)

    1. Had the Cioppino @ 26 Beach. It was really delish. Call them and ask. Maybe they only offer during certain times. I had last summer.

            1. I have not had it but Rock N Fish in Manhattan Beach has San Francisco Style Cioppino with
              Clams, halibut, swordfish, scallops, and prawns simmered in a broth of vegetables, tomatoes and herbs. Garnished with a King crab leg and garlic cheese toast on their menu.
