Where to buy fresh oysters in Los Angeles?

Visiting Los Angeles and I'm looking for fresh oysters. I've tried Whole Foods but their oysters are not that fresh. I'm assuming fisherman's would have the best choice, but not sure where they sell them.

    I agree with Breanna's recommendation of Son of A Gun Restaurant (especially the chicken sandwich), but I think the best oyster restaurant in LA is Fishing with Dynamite in Manhattan Beach. In addition to oysters, get some Peruvian scallops and he hamachi.

    I agree with Brew, but if you're on the Eastside, L & E Oyster Bar is EPIC. Located in Silverlake. Messhall Kitchen in Los Feliz is also pretty amazing with a great vibe and fantastic cocktails.

    Hi Fred! Getting fresh oysters is tough in LA. There's a fish market downtown somewhere in the Art's District, but you have to be a chef to buy there.

    The restaurant that sells the freshest oysters in LA (in my opinion) is Son of A Gun Restaurant. Get a Chicken Sandwich too while you're there :)

    Hi Fred,

    Santa Monica Seafood is your best option in the city: a good variety and very fresh.
