Blue Plate Oysterette – Santa Monica
1355 Ocean Ave
Santa Monica CA 90401
Blue Plate Oysterette will easily become your favorite neighborhood sea-foodie restaurant. Perched high up above the ocean in Santa Monica on Ocean Drive, the restaurant has outdoor seating where you see nothing but blue skies and even bluer water. The menu features seafood classics, and a friendly wait staff who love to make recommendations on their fresh catch of the day, the best raw oysters, and a perfect beer or glass of rose to go with your meal. Sea food has quickly reached my very slim palette. I’d advise to come by on a Friday night after an LA tour when the locals come to hang out. There always in good company. A fun crowd to mingle with if you get the right table.
Menu Must-Haves: Raw Bar Combo (a fresh mix of ocean-fresh oysters and clams on the half shell, crisp prawns, and ceviche on a platter); Oysters Rockefeller (an oldie but an oh-so goodie); Lobster Mac and Cheese (complete with truffle oil and fresh herbs).
