    Not bad; not worth the $30 for a lobster roll. It was worth trying since it is on my route for work & easier than tracking down the Lobsta Truck. I'll track down the truck more often. Fries are good

    The peel and eat shrimp are my favorite thing from the raw bar. Highly recommend the mussels as well. Chocolate bread pudding is the dessert to go for.

    If caviar is your thing, get the golden trout ($40 for an ounce, $20 for a half ounce), hackleback ($54 for an ounce, $27 for a half ounce), white sturgeon ($110 for an ounce, $55 for a half ounce). Read more

    If oysters are calling, grab a seat at the raw bar for front and center views. Order a plate ($18 for a half dozen, $36 for a dozen) or, better yet, come on Mondays for half-priced oysters. Read more

    Hungry Cat's cocktails are as assured as the langoustines and sea urchin from the raw bar, whose first wild salmon and halibut of the season tends to show up before it makes it anywhere else. Read more

    The Hungry Cat is rotating its soft-shell crab with bacon-wrappers w/ cornbread, squash, cherry tomatoes, and romesco sauce, or maybe crusty crustaceans w/ ramp pasta, maitake ‘shrooms, and pancetta. Read more

    Tried lobster roll. Fries is overcooked and oily, the bun in lobster sandwich is dry and lobster is mixed with parsley which is a questionable pair. Strictly not recommended

    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.

    Hungry Cat is my new hidden gem in LA. The BlueCrab was phenomenal and the drinks could be a tad but stiffer. Overall definitely worth trying.

    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

    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

    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.
