Since I’ve been back from my east coast trip, all I’ve been craving is seafood. Clams, crab, lobster…boiled, fried, baked…ANYTHING.  So naturally, when I heard about this new seafood joint in WeHo, I HAD to try it. Happy Birthday weekend to me!

Did you know that oysters are a great source of protein and can be an aphrodisiac? Did I just make things awkward?

Connie & Ted’s baked calamari with bread crumbs is like a sneaky way to eat a healthy version of fried calamari. You get the texture of breading, but not the grease and heaviness that comes with them being fried. And considering how many fried clam bellies I put in my belly, this was all probably for the best.

With everything else being so incredible, the friend clams fell short. You can snag some pretty phenomenal Ipswich fried clams at Sonny McLean’s in Santa Monica for a little less dough, plus it comes with a side of ridiculously good slaw.

1 pound of lobster. Hot drawn butter. Color me a happy girl.

Though on the pricey side (it’s seafood, and it’s in WeHo, so…), I’m absolutely coming back. I need more oysters and lobster rolls in my life!
