Connie & Ted’s Offers Stellar Seafood In West Hollywood

Lobster roll at Connie & Ted’s.

Reel in seafood from a Michelin-recognized chef at Connie & Ted’s in West Hollywood, the New England-inspired venture from Providence’s Michael Cimarusti. We definitely this place as one of our top destination restaurants in LA!

The culinarian modeled his casual, 140-seat restaurant and raw bar (named after his grandparents) on a Massachusetts clam shack, and the menu is rife with nostalgic East Coast eats. Standout appetizers include a sampler of “chowdas”—New England, Manhattan and the clear-broth Rhode Island styles—plus deviled oysters with San Marzano tomatoes, arugula and garlic breadcrumbs. Move on to a lobster roll or Portuguese fish stew (with a craft beer or cocktail such as the Narragansett Cooler) before ending with Indian pudding. FER Studio designed the contemporary-looking space, outfitted in wood and industrial-chic brushed metal with red accents. When it comes to culinary experiences, this place sets the scene for what’s going on in LA. 8171 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, 323.848.2722.
