So here's what we think...

Around this time of the year, I tend to find myself craving some Maine lobster and freshly steamed mussels. That being said, finding good and authentic seafood restaurants in LA isn’t the easiest feat. However, two years ago came a much needed seafood spot in the heart of West Hollywood from Sam Baxter, Michael Cimarusti and Craig Nickoloff, chef and partners, respectively, of the critically acclaimed Providence. Connie and Ted’s located off of Santa Monica Blvd captures the New England east coast vibe in style and hits the nail on the head with their simple yet delicious seafood dishes. With a wait staff that is very knowledgeable about their menu’s gluten-free options and accommodations, this one is definitely a jackpot for our restaurant catalogue…

For the food, we started with the delicious Jo’s Wicked Good Chowda’ – a three cup sampler of Manhattan, New England, and Rhode Island Clear. All of their chowders are gluten-free and free of additives! It is hard to find quality soups without the addition of flour as a thickener, but these babies are fresh and packed with all of the flavor that would be found in any authentic, east-coast restaurant. For my entrée I had the New England Boiled Dinner. Served in a large bowl of mussels, steamers, lobster, linguica, potatoes, steamed corn, and in a light broth laced with seaweed, the boiled dinner is literally what I dream of at night. It smells fresh, tastes delicious, and the corn is just as sweet and juicy as if straight from Jersey. Now for dessert… The Indian Pudding is a classic New England cornmeal and molasses pudding topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. The pudding is rich with a syrupy molasses flavor, and is served warm with a scoop of chilled homemade vanilla ice cream creating a nice contrast. This comforting dish was the perfect end to an already seemingly perfect meal. If you’re too full from your deconstructed lobster roll or French fries (cross-contamination does apply) that is no problem. Their homemade ice creams and sorbets, such as mint chip and peanut butter ribbon, are available a la carte and are gluten-free! (*Ask for daily selections as they change and may not be all GF!) Other NOBREAD orders I had my eye on included the lobster by the pound and the Grilled Catch of the Day.

Casual-chic seafood restaurants are few and far between in Los Angeles; they’re either stuffy and fancy or some fast-casual grill shack. Thankfully, Connie and Ted’s gets it and their classy New England-esque décor has quality food to match. I will be going back here plenty this summer, for a little taste of the East Coast on the West Coast.
