After a rocky beginning, this sustainable seafood restaurant in Echo Park has transformed into a reliable neighborhood destination for lobster rolls, freshly shucked oysters and a New England-inspired bill of fare. Where the Lonely Oyster stands out most, however, is with certain specialties brought to the table by lead chef Dom Crisp, previously of Pasadena's Saso (now closed) and L&E Oyster Bar. Above all, we're talking about Crisp's must-try cioppino, which features a mix of fresh seafood cooked à la minute in a flavorful, buttery broth we've yet to taste anywhere else. Other touches, like the housemade ice cream and vegetable sides made with seasonal produce, add even more flair to your meal.
