DETAILS

Like mischievous kittens eyeing a fish bowl, patrons of The Hungry Cat sneak longing peeks at passing plates as they anxiously await their own choices from Suzanne Goin and David Lentz's East Coast-seafood-house-inspired menu. The husband-and-wife team had already achieved local-legend status when they opened their sleek Hollywood bistro and raw bar in 2004, but somewhere within this Sunset and Vine retail complex's industrial-chic setting, L.A.'s young and beautiful found reason to fall in love all over again. Hip, specialty cocktails and more than 20 wines by the glass pair perfectly with impeccable plates of the ocean's best, including such urbane choices as sturgeon caviar or bluefin tuna tartare. But dishes can be fun to eat, too: Order the trademark lobster roll, a classic treat for crustaceanophiles, or the massive bacon, avocado and blue cheese Pug Burger, one of the city's best.

Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner nightly. Sat-Sun brunch 11 am-3 pm.

"When soft-shell crabs come into season, the Pacific langoustines are running or it is time to strap on the bibs and dive into a dozen oysters or a pile of Maryland blues, the Hungry Cat, Suzanne Goin and David Lentz's oddly shaped seafood restaurant, is probably the first place to turn. Because the first rule of the kitchen seems to be: Don't mess too much with the fish."
