Connie & Ted's
West Hollywood, CA 90046
LA Weekly's Description
At Chef Michael Cimarusti's West Hollywood restaurant, executive chef Sam Baxter has created a menu of incredibly straightforward, classic American seafood dishes. There's a lobster roll, served hot or cold on an excellent brioche roll, made with giant chunks of tender lobster meat, the sandwich relying on barely anything other than the quality of the seafood and the bread, and the skill with which both are cooked, to make its sweet, bouncy point. Steamers arrive, as they should, with clam broth and drawn butter for dunking, and aside from an occasional gritty clam (par for the course with steamers), they're pure, messy fun. A daily-changing roster of fish is available simply grilled, and sometimes rarely served varieties like bluefish can be had, pungent and funky and delicious.
Tips from foursquare
Service was great. Atmosphere was wonderful. The food was just delicious delicious delicious! Really yummy!
Impeccable. Oh, and delicious, too! Please don't ask for Connie or Ted...they've already heard it.
Everything is absolutely amazing! You can't go wrong. Seriously. If you're going to get the lobster roll, I recommend getting the hot vs cold.
The Ocho tequila is divine.
Sit at the raw bar... This place is hands down the best non-sceney raw bar in LA.
