No travel plans for the summer? With L.A.’s chefs creating some of the best lobster dishes in the country, Angelenos can visit the East Coast without getting on a plane for National Lobster Day on June 15!
ROKU (West Hollywood)
Innovative Dining Group (IDG)’s newest original concept offers elevated Japanese and teppanyaki cuisine, offering an entertaining, interactive dining experience. Head Teppan Chef Mike Monzon takes teppanyaki to new heights by topping the highest quality Nova Scotia Lobster Tail with Uni Butter. Available both in the dining room and at the teppanyaki tables, the Lobster Garlic Noodles are both decadent and addicting.
BOA Steakhouse (West Hollywood, Santa Monica)
IDG’s BOA Steakhouse offers modern steakhouse cuisine in a bold, cutting-edge environment. Executive Chef Jose Melendez takes “Surf and Turf” to a new level by combining lobster with classic steak sides, including Lobster Mashed Potatoes and Lobster Mac and Cheese.
Cape Seafood and Provisions (Fairfax Village)
At Chef Michael Cimarusti’s newest concept, a sustainable seafood shop and retail market on Fairfax Ave., a live lobster tank keeps the crustaceans fresh until ready to be prepared. The mainstay of the grab-and-go offerings is the legendary Lobster Roll (also served at the shop’s sister restaurant, Connie and Ted’s), with mayonnaise, chives, and celery on a housemade roll.
Connie and Ted’s (West Hollywood)
Chef Michael Cimarusti’s ode to New England seafood restaurants, which celebrates its 3rd anniversary this June, offers inventive lobster dishes beyond the lobster roll. As part of the restaurant’s newly launched “Something Special Every Day” menu, Monday’s daily special is a Baked Stuffed Lobster. Quickly becoming one of the hottest weekend brunch destinations in town, Connie and Ted’s puts a spin on the classic Southern “Biscuits and Gravy” with the addition of Maine lobster, sunny side up eggs, housemade buttermilk biscuits, and lobster gravy.
Go ahead, take your pick of lobster delights around the city!
