Foursquare Tips

  • A civic treasure, try a dozen oysters or a bowl of shrimp, a crab cake or a bowl of chowder, a glass of Picpoul de Pinet or an expertly mixed cucumber cocktail. The lobster roll is worth the fuss!
  • New American Seafood. Seasonal and sustainable fish with a weekly changing menu. The main lobster roll on the brunch menu is melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
  • Kumquatini is delicious.
  • tuna tartar, oysters, mussels, & the pug burger...DOOO EEETZ! their coffee is awesome too!!!
  • You might as well bring a flashlight at night. You can't see anything
  • Great Blood Orange Margaritas!
  • Brunch is great!
  • A slight twist on a classic cocktail, the Greyhound Proper at The Hungry Cat is a sweet-bitter balance of Plymouth gin, grapefruit juice and candied grapefruit.
  • Avocado Toast
  • Great spot for seafood just off the PCH at the edge of Santa Monica. $1 oysters on Monday and one of LA's better lobster rolls.
  • Try the uni!
  • One of the best lobster rolls in LA! Also great cocktails with fresh squeezed juice (try the greyhound!)
  • A vendor at LA Weekly's Tacolandia 2015!
  • At brunch, a seafood platter, caviar by the ounce, and crab cakes benedict are also available, as well as The Hungry Cat's famous raw bar, lobster roll and burger.
  • It's possible you'll want to start your Sunday off right with an oyster shooter if so, The Hungry Cat can provide just such a brunch treat, made with vodka, tequila or sake.
  • The bartender Cameron is the best
  • A little pricey, but worth it for some very fresh seafood.
  • Blue crab festival on select summer nights. Call ahead for reservations. Buckets of blue crab.
  • Look for the sustainable fish! You won't be disappointed.
  • This is excellent! Congrats The Hungry Cat. #octopus
