There's no better way to beat the summer
heat than heading to the coast, and thankfully there are plenty of stellar
spots to sate your appetite while you're there. Here are some of our
favorite seaside eats in L. A. Blue Plate Oysterette,
Santa Monica Few things beat slurping down oysters while overlooking the
Santa Monica sunset swaddled in Mexican blankets at this popular eatery. If
all the fresh sea air has your appetite hankering for something more
substantial than a dozen hama hamas, try the shrimp cobb salad or the
Baja-style fish tacos with grilled white fish, cabbage, and cilantro aioli.
Fishing With Dynamite David LeFevre has made a splash with his collection
of Manhattan Beach eateries, including FWD (pictured), the chef's 33-seat
homage to the sea, complete with New England chowder, lobster rolls, and
Maryland blue crab cakes. It may a challenge, especially if you order The
Mothershucker—an oversized seafood tower with more fresh shellfish than you
can imagine—but at least try to save room for dessert, as his take on key
lime pie made with keffir is out of this world. Malibu Farm Restaurant,
Malibu It doesn't get more SoCal than a farm-to-table restaurant on the
pier in "The 'Bu" unless, of course, the place is actually owned by the
farmer, as is with the newly opened Malibu Farm Restaurant. Chef/owner/farmer
Helene Henderson serves her own produce and eggs for breakfast, lunch and
dinner service at her charming space overlooking the ocean, as well as wine,
sangria and locally brewed beer. If you're seeking something even more
casual, they also have a counter service cafe at the end of the pier.
Rick Poon Menotti's, Venice
Latte art aficionado Christopher "Nicely" Abel Alameda opened his own
uber-hip, pint-sized Venice coffee bar by the sea, drawing in locals with his
unique flare for Spanish lattes, modern mochas, and cortados. The Yeastie
Boys Bagel truck is known to park outside regularly, making for the perfect
carry-away combo for a walk on the sand. Nobu, Malibu If you're after
something a bit more upscale, there's perhaps no better place for seaside
dining than Nobu Matsuhisa's namesake sushi restaurant, especially if
you're into celeb spotting. With spectacular views of the Pacific and
seafood to match, it's easy to see why this is a favorite among locals and
jetsetters alike. Quality Seafood, Redondo Beach Redondo Beach alone is
unfairly oft overlooked. Ride your beach cruiser down the strand from
Manhattan or Venice, then fill up on fresh seafood—or, if you're the
daring type, live uni—and cold beers before cycling back. If you get
tuckered out along your return route, not to worry: stop at MB Post for a
bloody mary recharge. That'll do the trick. Rosenthal Wine Bar, Malibu
"Rosé all day" could become your mantra when hanging out at this
Malibu-based winery, whose tasting room is located conveniently along the
Pacific Coast Highway. Bring a designated driver, obviously, and then head
further up the coast to Malibu Seafood, where you'll get great bay shrimp
cocktails and ahi tuna burgers or Paradise Cove, one of the very few places
where you can nosh on beach eats with your feet actually in the sand.
