Water Grill is still the place downtown for impeccable chilled shellfish -- fresh Dungeness crab, Long Island cherrystone clams, oysters from all over, Mexican white shrimp. But also, be sure to take advantage of chef David LeFevre's thoughtful seafood cooking with global accents.
Water Grill, 544 S. Grand Ave., (213) 891-0900, www.watergrill.com. Lunch weekdays, dinner daily. Entrees, $30 to $52.
