BP Oysterette for the holidays

See also

When the holiday season becomes a blur of shopping, errands, cooking, parties and frequent trips to the airport, it is easy to lose sight of one of the great opportunities that the end of the year brings ... time. Time to just relax and take in the pleasures around us. For the last several years, there has been an explosion of new restaurants on Ocean Avenue but one such establishment that marches to its own consistent and delicious drum is BLUE PLATE OYSTERETTE (www.blueplatesantamonica.com), an ode to the best in East Coast clam shack dinning.

This is a neighborhood place that caters to an ever changing clientele from all over the world, and sits only steps from the sea near the 3rd Street Promenade. BP Oysterette dishes the favs of East Coast seafood, starting with clams, lobster rolls, fish 'n' chips, steamers and oysters rockefeller. They also grill up an excellent garlic encrusted Branzino for those interested in lighter fare and can serve a tasty fish taco as good as any in the LA cuisine scene.

So while many are tucking into yet another holiday meal of saturated fat and sugar, BP Oysterette rivals the yuletide standards with a lobster mac & cheese, or cornmeal crusted fried calamari that just begs us to sit in the blue and white stripped bistro with a glass of white burgundy and enjoy the company of good friends and family.
