Connie & Ted's

Seafood in West Hollywood & Mid-City

At this modernized version of a New England seafood shack by acclaimed chef Michael Cimarusti, there are always up to a dozen oyster varieties at the raw bar, classics such as fried clams, grilled fish (wild and sustainably raised), lobsters and steamers, lobster rolls served cold with mayo or hot with drawn butter, and shellfish marinara is a sacred thing.

For brunch, look for faves such as crab and lobster omelet or the Nor'easter breakfast sandwich with bacon and fried clams, and oyster Bloody Mary shooters (Bloody Mary with a raw oyster inside) that will rock your boat and maybe your world.

Pair your choice with a craft beer, Rhode Island coffee milk, or something crisp and dry from the wine list.

Valet parking is $8.
