Seafood by the Seaside
The best seafood in LA is by the beach. Fresh fish is served at an array of dining atmospheres from casual shacks like Malibu Seafood and Reel Inn to fancy restaurants like Moonshadows and Chart House. The fish tacos at James’ Beach are as good as the movie “I Love You Man” makes them out to be and the raw bars at Blue Plate Oysterette and Santa Monica Seafood are of the highest quality. Trendy seafood spots include Salt Air on Abbot Kinney and Fishing With Dynamite in Manhattan Beach and the crashing waves against the rocks outside of Gladstones and Duke’s make the pricier menu worthwhile.
