Housed in the old Daily Grill spot on the second floor of the strip mall on the corner of Ventura and Laurel Canyon boulevards, Laurel Point is a breath of fresh air.
The space is open, bright, and airy. Diners can sit inside at the long, white bar, at four-tops, or on the patio in booths or tables. The color scheme resembles the shoreline with white ceilings and walls, sand-colored wood floors done in a fish scale design, and accents of blue on booth cushions and tables.
Sushi options include rolls as well as three, six, and nine options of tuna, salmon, and hamachi; oysters can be ordered by the half dozen, dozen, and Rockefeller style with creamed kale, panko, and Parmesan.
Appetizers include shishito peppers, mussels with grilled lemon, a creamy blue crab dip, grilled artichoke, crab deviled eggs, smoked trout, chowder, and wings.
Sandwiches include a grass-fed burger, lobster roll, fish, and fried chicken. Fresh seafood includes trout, salmon, and swordfish prepared blackened, grilled, or Cantonese style.
Salads include Caesar, lobster and shrimp Cobb, tuna, chicken, and a shrimp niçoise. Sides feature a kohlrabi slaw, creamed kale, and fries.
Bigger main dishes are a whole Thai snapper for two, steak frites, crispy cod with waffle chips, cioppino, and linguini with zucchini.
Weekend brunch includes many of the lunch and dinner dishes as well as frittatas, smoked trout, and prosciutto with grilled peach toasts, cheddar biscuits and gravy and lobster benedict.
Desserts are huge and can easily feed four people. Both the strawberry sundae and the coconut lemon cake are standouts.
