Son of a Gun
If you are craving fresh seafood in Los Angeles, head to Son of a Gun near Cedars-Sinai Hospital in the Beverly Grove area of the city. Son of a Gun is from the same owners as Jon & Vinny’s, Petit Trois, and other popular LA eateries.
Established in 2010, this nautical-themed restaurant is open daily for both lunch and dinner. As you would expect from a nautical eatery, casual fish and seafood dishes are the specialty here. In fact, it has the best lobster roll you’ll find outside of New England! Other popular menu items include the shrimp toast sandwich (with sriracha mayo) and the lobster BLT. Another favorite for non-seafood lovers is their famous fried chicken sandwich. Expect to pay between $11 and $32 for your food for either lunch or dinner. A full selection of wines (many offered by the glass), beers and spirits are available.
Only half the restaurant is reserved seating. The rest is communal tables, offered on a first-come, first-served basis. It’s best to plan ahead as this place is usually packed. Click here to make reservations.
