The menu at Etta—the first L.A. restaurant from Chicago mega-chef Danny Grant—is full of exciting, splurgeworthy experiences. This $155 shareable lobster “picnic” is the standout. Have a look.
A two-level tower of accompaniments is topped with naan-like bread and lettuce cups to serve as the vesssels for diners to make luxurious, DIY seafood wraps.
The tower’s bottom level is a bounty of flavorful delights, including a number of spicy surprises: sunflower seeds are paired with guajillo chiles while a smashed cucumber salad has both Sichuan peppercorns and pickled Fresno chiles.
A whole lobster and a pound of king crab legs are cooked on the hearth, right above the embers, giving the dish a smoky flavor. Ten spicy, bubbling shrimp get a punch of umami from Italian fish sauce.
