THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Hungry Cat Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: Occupying an industrial-chic space tucked away in Hollywood’s Sunset + Vine complex, The Hungry Cat dedicates itself to classic seafood house fare. And each time we eat at this casual dining spot from David Lentz, we feel like licking our paws and whiskers with contentment.

Food & Drinks: The nine-seat raw bar specializes in formidable seafood platters --- the "Hungry Cat" is a three-tier plateau that includes oysters, clams, shrimp, mussels, scallops, crab and lobster. Fresh seafood entrées like lobster rolls, shrimp and pork dumplings and grilled whole fish round out the offerings, and meat-eaters can opt for a generous burger with bacon, cheddar and special sauce. Weekend brunch features choices like a crab cake Benedict or lobster frittata. Don’t miss dessert, including Meyer lemon curd parfait or ultra-rich chocolate and olive oil brownie. A short international wine list features several by-the-glass choices, and the friendly, knowledgeable servers have been known to offer small sips to help guests decide. Craft cocktails are also available.
