  1. i should say that we are up in Laurel Canyon and would love something hollywood or perhaps downtown...

    has anyone tried the oysters at Farmer's Market on 3rd?

    1. At this point, probably Bristol Farm…but order them today.

      I always have mine flown.

          I was at S.M. Seafood yesterday. The market was so packed that they closed the cafe. Oysters were plentiful; good variety and folks were lined up to get them. S.M Seafood is closing at 5:00 today. Suggest going as early as possible. I had the oysters at the seafood bar on Saturday. Absolutely pristine and delicious.

            had the kumomotos recently there -- tasty!
