WHY A pristine raw bar, impeccable New England seafood dishes and a smart wine list—and it’s all served until midnight, with the raw bar open until 1 a.m.
WHAT Always full of hungry hep cats sharing oversize seafood platters, this glass-and-metal bistro may not be L.A.’s most elegant seafood restaurant, but it might be its most accomplished. It keeps the formula simple: You come here for New England-style seafood (or one of the best burgers in town), a good glass of wine and one killer dessert, the chocolate bread pudding. If you’re with someone who doesn’t like seafood, comfort them with the pug burger.
