“Food & Drink in Santa Monica, CA”
Since 2005, the hungry cat has offered the highest quality fish and meats matched with Southern California's abundant seasonal produce. The result is not simply a seafood house, but a continuously evolving restaurant, following the seasons, but always remaining true to the product. With a focus on the artisan, the hungry cat produces its own in-house smoked meats and seafood, curing and pickling, as well as featuring a unique farmers market driven cocktail program, esoteric wine list and rotating local beers.
Diners turn up at both locations for the assorted fruits de mer: Maine lobster, snow crab legs, sea urchin in the shell and messy (but so worth it) peel 'n eat shrimp. If oysters are calling, grab a seat at the raw bar for front and center views. Order a plate ($18 for a half dozen, $36 for a dozen) or, better yet, come on Mondays for half-priced oysters. Another option: Head to the Hollywood location for boozy shooters ($9) layered with sake, lemon, sriracha and furikake. If caviar is more your thing, lap it up with golden trout ($40 for an ounce, $20 for a half ounce), hackleback ($54 for an ounce, $27 for a half ounce), white sturgeon ($110 for an ounce, $55 for a half ounce). If you're feeling extra fancy, head to Santa Monica for Siberian osetra ($120 for an ounce, $60 for a half ounce).
