After checking out the menu here for dineLA Restaurant Week, I decided to take an extended lunch from work and host a 2nd table here, as the garlic noodles with shrimp just sound so tempting!
"True to its name, Crustacean offers many a shelled sea creature, but the menu also seems to include everything else, too, from sashimi and satays on down to rack of lamb and braised short ribs. And then there are the options from the “secret kitchen,” a concealed cuisine that’s off-limits to everybody except owners Helene An and her daughter, Elizabeth (as well as employees with 10 years of service), where the really exciting specials are concocted away from prying eyes, including such dishes as drunken crab and “Colossal” tiger prawns. Elizabeth designed Crustacean to look like their grandfather’s estate in Vietnam, with a dramatic central courtyard ringed with balcony seats and a transparent aquarium walkway with koi underfoot. And what better place for a culinary estate than smack in the middle of Beverly Hills?"
