Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

L.A.'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 indoor and outdoor seating—grab a spot 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 or deviled oysters. Two-fisters include the lobster and clam rolls, served on a griddled top-split bun. Classic seaside plates include grilled or steamed lobster served with drawn butter, fried clams served with tartar sauce and fries, and a clam bake 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 small list of cocktails are just as appetizing as the food (housemade coffee syrup and banana cordial, anyone?), and a perfect way to start a summer feast. Want to stop by on the weekend? Connie and Ted's also serves brunch, with dishes like biscuits and gravy, crabs and eggs, and French toast.
