Seafood restaurants in LA and environs
Hello! My in-laws are coming into town from Kentucky next week. They would like to eat at "a good seafood restaurant" and I'm looking for some recommendations. Let me give you a little criteria (and this is why I don't know where to go!):
-- no sushi (but raw oysters are well-loved)
-- not Providence (too weird for Dad) or Watergrill (I've heard more than a couple people say they leave "hungry" with a huge bill. Is there any truth in that?), but it's totally OK if it's an expensive place.
-- not Malibu Seafood or Reel Inn (already been)
-- not at the market near the Port o'Call (already going)
I did see CharlesKochel's helpful post that was added to earlier today. Helpful, but I'm looking something in a wider geographical spread!
I really appreciate any input! Thank you so much.
Two new seafood restaurants have opened in the last month with great reviews Fishing With Dynamite in Manhattan Beach
and Connie & Ted's in West Hollywood. Both are a tribute of the fish shacks of the East Coast.
for wonderful seafood small plates try Son of A Gun on 3rd Street in West Hollywood (the chefs from Animal).
& Water Grill Downtown (also a second location opening in Santa Monica later this summer).
