MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

In stark contrast to Old Pasadena’s commercialized shopping district sits this simple but alluring seafood bar. Inspired by New England cooking, diners can easily make a meal out of the raw menu alone, which features a roster of oysters, clams, lobster and shrimp. But cooked plates display just as much care and attention, as in the classic clam chowder or delicious market ceviche with ponzu vinaigrette. First-timers though will want to head straight for the rolls—large brioche buns from La Brea Bakery arrive toasted, buttered and filled with Maine lobster, Dungeness crab or smoked trout with lemon mayo.

It’s all too easy to finish in an airy room decorated with white brick accents, vibrant blue tiles, and schools of decorative fish hanging on the walls.
