MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Located among a fashionable string of shops and restaurants, find this bohemian delight for seafood-focused Californian fare. Begin meals with a sample of wonderful small plates, like the shrimp toast sandwich with hoisin sauce, herbs and Sriracha mayo. Raw offerings are often prepared with innovative twists and unexpected pairings, such as hamachi carpaccio in a delicate galbi vinaigrette with Pink Lady apples, radish and microgreens. Also, be sure to sample the lobster roll, crusty yet buttery and generously laden with sweet meat bathed in celery-lemon aïoli; or the tuna melt, layering cheddar, tomato and crème fraîche over toasted rye. But the lunchtime favorite has nothing to do with the seas-their fried chicken sandwich is downright famous.
