Even if you weren’t thinking about a po’boy when you turned onto Jefferson, it’s hard to make the trek between Crenshaw and La Brea without stopping for one at Mel’s Fish Shack. The Cajun-style seafood institution is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and Georgette Powell’s restaurant is still firing on all cylinders. They knock out battered and fried fish plates using a wide variety of fresh seafood, including wild-caught options like sand dabs, snapper, and sole with some excellent Southern sides. You can also get your fish grilled over salad or wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, and on Mondays their special coconut-based Crab Soup is an under-the-radar delight.
