If you’re a Bostonian or have spent significant time in Boston in the past half-decade, you’ve probably heard about Saltie Girl. It’s one of that city’s most popular restaurants, and now is one of LA’s newest imports, with a location right on the Sunset Strip. The choice of venue is a little puzzling—show us an Angeleno who willingly eats on the Strip on a regular basis—but it’s clear that Saltie Girl is already one of the best restaurants in the area. Yes, the menu’s too big, with a few mediocre “California-inspired” dishes (you can find better sashimi, toasts, and salads elsewhere), but the things you expect to be good from a Boston restaurant are incredible. The buttery clam chowder and lobster roll overflow with tender chunks of meat. The thick, juicy burger comes topped with pork belly, avocado, and a savory house dressing. There’s even a tiny booklet detailing their massive tinned fish collection—don’t miss the Spanish sardines in hot sauce. Your selection arrives on a beautiful board filled with whipped butter, chutney, three kinds of salt, and crunchy house bread. It’s one of the many reasons we’ll stomach the Strip again and again to eat here.

Connie & Ted’s

Connie & Ted’s used to be the most popular restaurant in LA. Now it’s just a neighborhood spot, and so much better because of it.

The Lonely Oyster

The Lonely Oyster is a seafood spot in Echo Park with some excellent dishes, but also glaring lapses in execution.

Dudley Market

Dudley Market is a low-key neighborhood seafood restaurant that’s just what Venice needed.
