Broad Street Oyster Co.
Broad Street Oyster in Malibu is known for their beautiful lobster rolls decadently topped with uni and caviar. But chef Christopher Tompkins’ oysters still shine just as brightly as when he first started as a pop-up on the streets of Santa Barbara, armed only with some ice, lemons, and a shucking knife.
The deal: $19 for six oysters, $37 for a dozen.
How to book: Walk-in only.
The New England-style takeout spot that transitioned from pop-up to permanent just prior to the pandemic has gained a cult following for its “world-famous” lobster rolls (which you can get warm and buttered or chilled and mixed with mayo), along with plenty of raw bar platters—from shrimp cocktail to crudo to, of course, a selection of daily oysters. Also look for entrées like sea urchin spaghetti, chorizo and clams, and wild local king salmon...and long lines on most nice-weather weekends.
How to book: Walk-ins welcome. Order online for pickup or delivery.
