This Westside seafooder from owner Ford Fry (his JCT. Kitchen & Bar is just a clam's throw away) baits crowds with a range of raw to roasted fin fare and beachy cocktails that match the toes-in-the-sand mood; the lofty space (it's in a former ham-curing factory) charts a breezy course with nautically inspired trappings, and the moderate prices won't leave wallets in knots.
