LA's seafood guru, chef Michael Cimarusti of Providence, pays homage to his New England roots—his grandfather was a fisherman in Rhode Island—with a modern take on the clam shack. The lofty eatery in the heart of West Hollywood features alfresco dining with seating outdoor and indoor—grab a seat at the raw bar for a close-up view of the kitchen—and a constellation of ceiling lights. (Design buffs and Cimarusti fans can also admire the collage of oyster tags of 15+ years at Providence.) To eat, order from the raw bar (think: oysters, clams, lobsters, crabs, shrimp and spot prawns) or get hands-on with oysters Rockefeller (three for $12, six for $18) or deviled oysters (3 for $12, six for $18). Two-fisters include the lobster and clam rolls, served on a griddled top-split bun. Classic seaside plates include grilled or steamed lobster ($25 per pound) served with drawn butter, fried clams ($16) served with tartar sauce and fries, and a clam bake ($26) of mussels, steamer clams, lobster, linguiça (Portuguese sausage) and steamed potatoes and corn. Domestic craft brews are offered on tap and by the bottle, as well as a California-centric selection of reds and whites by the glass, carafe and bottle. A limited list of cocktails ($12) are just as appetizing as the food (housemade coffee syrup and banana cordial, anyone?), and a perfect way to start a summer feast. (June 3, 2013)
