The vast expanse east of LAX doesn’t exactly scream seafood, but Coni’ Seafood has managed to turn Inglewood into an oceanic dining destination. The minimalist, glass-facade space houses grey walls, aquarium-like room dividers filled with under-the-sea tchotchkes and a large, tapered-roof back patio for beachside-style dining. The lean menu includes popular smoked marlin tacos ($9), over a dozen shrimp dishes from raw to deep-fried and more elaborate house specialties like Pescado Zarandeado ($22/kilo)—butterflied snook fish that’s marinated in soy sauce and grilled to savory perfection over charcoal. Chicharrón de pescado ($16) involves crispy, pan-fried tilapia chunks with tangy soy and lemon sauce, while another standout dish stars sweet langoustines ($20), bathed in garlic, chiles, lemon juice and, if you’re lucky, roe.
