    The peel-and-eat shrimp are great, and the oysters are served simple, as they should be. Drinks are amazing and refreshing. -Alex Eusebio, Top Chef

    LA was in desperate need of a casual seafood hotspot, and got one in this hip venue. Locals love it for the atmosphere and seriously good fare. But beware - the lobster rolls are said to be addictive!

    The first rule of the kitchen seems to be: Don't mess too much with the fish. That means the Santa Barbara sea urchin isn't a source of intriguing richness, it's a sea urchin. Read more

    It's almost a joke how XL this burger is, which makes it funny that the HQ Niman Ranch beef's also topped with avocado, house-smoked bacon, and Danish bleu cheese. Read more

    Lucky Peach managing editor Rachel Khong: "The pug burger [Ed: yes, "pug," not "pub"] is a California-y tower of thin bun, fat patty, avocado, bacon, red onion, bleu cheese, and more."

    Loved it. We ate outside on the patio, shaded and breezy. The mussels were great (with lamb bacon) and the oysters superb. Wait staff is excellent. I'm told the lobster pasta is fantastic.

    Though the specialty here is seafood, Chef Lenz says the variations on surf and turf are among his favorites, such as the house-made chorizo and braised clams, or scallops and sweetbreads.
