A casual spot to hit up with a crowd, Oddfish is focused on seafood en masse, like big bowls of fragrant shellfish cooked in a wine-y broth, or a whole seabass with charred, crispy skin, drizzled in olive oil and topped with a healthy amount of cilantro. If you’re with friends, go for the seafood hot mess (lobster, squid, mussels, prawns, and scallops grilled a la plancha and served with a punchy salsa verde)—getting dirty is unavoidable but that’s half the fun. Vegetable sides hold their own, too: the cauliflower arrives charred and whole, covered in spicy chermoula and bitter pomegranate molasses, while carrots are deeply roasted and topped with yogurt. Don’t forget to order a side of grilled bread to mop up the sauces.
