Escape the Ordinary: 8 New Experiences to Have in Los Angeles

Rappahannock Oyster Bar

Where you can indulge in briny oysters and sip sake by the Bay

Nestled within “The Row”—a 30-acre historic district turned hub for the coolest shops, eateries, and offices in LA—Rappahannock Oyster Bar is home to some of the city’s best and freshest seafood and oysters. The Virgina-based family-owned restaurant’s mantra is “good food, grown well” and it shows on the plate—and in your glass. Instead of just the usual white wine, Rappahannock also serves its seafood with sake. Order a dozen oysters from the raw bar with the sipping-friendly Sōtō Junmai Daiginjo for a deliciously unexpected combination. The sake’s crisp orchard fruit flavors give way to light sweetness and umami that pairs perfectly with the sweet, mild, and briny Bay oysters on the menu. You’ll never want the meal—or the weekend—to end.
