About the restaurant
Blue Plate Oysterette was inspired by East Hampton summer lobster bakes and mouthwatering lunches at Montauk’s favorite roadside eateries. With influences like Pearl Oyster Bar and Mary’s Fish Camp in New York, Oysterette serves lunch and dinner seven days a week with a menu straight out of the seafood shacks you find on the East Coast. Chunky, overflowing lobster rolls, buckets of steamed clams in broth so flavorful that bread demands to be dunked, clam chowder, mussels in broth, ceviche, and raw shellfish so fresh you can smell the ocean. Filling the void in the Westside restaurant scene for a casual, beachy, seafood restaurant and buzzing neighborhood vibe appealing to both surfers and studio heads.

I've been here several times now, and everything is always so delicious! It's fun to bring a group and sample everything. Hummus, babaganush, beets, carrots, cauliflower with labne, and couscous with vegetables are among my favorites. And also their fluffy pitas are incredible. (Just writing this review is making me hungry! ) The service is also great and the restaurant has a lovely vibe (including an outdoor space when the weather is nice). Can't wait to return!

We dined at Tabla on a Wednesday evening and were the only party. The staff was very attentive, friendly and professional. Food arrived quickly and as ordered - everyone in the party was pleased with the meal and complemented the flavors. The menu is varied and offers something for everyone. Food seemed fresh and well seasoned. The restaurant itself is lovely - awesome decor with a bit of humor including some food based quotes painted on the wall. I wish I lived closer and could return to Tabla again soon. It's truly a gem!

From of our family to yours, Carousel is the premier Los Angeles area restaurant providing guests with the complete culinary experience when it comes to enjoying traditional middle eastern and Lebanese cuisine. In the Middle Eastern culture, meza (Lebanese term for appetizer) consists of a vast array of small sized, hot and cold dishes, great for sampling and sharing. At Carousel, our menu offers a selection of kebabs to seafood to an array of vegetarian items. We offer more than 60 meza items, ranging from familiar dishes, such as hummus, falafel and tabouleh to more traditional delicacies. Everything that we serve comes from original family recipes passed down through generations. With the supervision of our Chef de Cuisine and co-owner, Mrs. Rose Tcholakian, each dish that is served is sure to bestow the quality and freshness Carousel is well known for. For those unfamiliar to Lebanese food, a helpful service staff will guide you through what is sure to be a habit-forming journey.

About the restaurant
A TODA MADRE born as consequence of Mexican Food has been evolving in the last decade, people is tired to eat a huge portions of rice, beans and a bunch of tortillas, We decided to show our culture through the food but in different way, not compromising the flavors and roots, we created a simple menu, every single taco has their own components , ingredients and explosion of flavors, at the same time, we use premium steaks to make tacos, burritos, quesadillas and bowls. We like rice and beans of course!, but for now it is time to show our food in a different presentation and healthy way.
