Silver Lake’s latest addition is Playita, a new mariscos restaurant opened by the team behind Guisados. The tiny, order-at-the-window space on Sunset Blvd. has a shaded front patio and serves everything from shrimp aguachile to cheese quesadillas to mixed ceviche. When it comes to their tacos though, you can’t go wrong with the shrimp or fish. Both come perfectly beer-battered with a proper crunch on the outside, with moist, meaty interiors complemented by subtle heat from the pico de gallo and salsa roja on top. You can choose between flour or corn tortillas, and we recommend the chewy, translucent flour. Also, be sure to order a tomato-based campechana on your way out. It comes filled with crab, octopus, albacore, and shrimp, and is the ideal snack to have while walking around Sunset Junction.

Dudley Market doesn't miss. It's part oyster disco, part oceanfront wine bar, and our first choice for seafood and burgers in Venice.
