THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ocean Avenue Seafood Restaurant Review

: When the King brothers branched out from their Long Beach home to the tonier climes of Santa Monica, they knew that their seafood expertise would be tested. The result was this wide-open, simply designed restaurant where the whole point was ultra-fresh fish expertly prepared. While time has taken the cutting-edge diners to newer and more elaborate locations elsewhere, Ocean Avenue Seafood maintains its fine quality. Start with a selection from the raw bar, with nine varietals of oysters, clams, Dungeness crab and lobster. There is a hearty clam chowder and entrées include Idaho rainbow trout done almandine-style, Asian-accented Fijian albacore, and a selection of steaks. A helpful wine list suggests fish and wine pairings. Banana cream pie, a specialty of the house, provides a pleasurable ending.
