Right in the middle of 2nd St in Belmont Shore, this newish spot looks a bit corporate, and doesn’t ever seen to get busy. But those two facts are misleading, because Lasher’s is excellent. Grab a spot on the small front patio, and feel free to order anything on the menu - it’s a bit all-over-the-place (with everything from crab cakes to a meat pie), but when the food is this good, that doesn’t really matter. The fried green tomatoes in particular are fantastic, as is the cioppino.
Lasher’s Kitchen is permanently closed.
