There’s always money in seafood and wine

Bottlefish, Brentwood

There’s a new name in Los Angeles seafood today, as Bottlefish opens its doors inside Brentwood Gardens. The lunch and dinner destination officially starts today (though only for dinner tonight), and you can make reservations for both via Resy right now.

The upscale Bottlefish feels like a perfect fit for Brentwood, with a room bathed in warm light and wrapped in wine bottles. The room holds 88 seats in total, with a bar area and a 36-seat heated patio to boot. There’s even a glass-enclosed kitchen for watching all the work being done. Restaurateurs Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax, the founders of CPK, are behind the project.

As for that work, expect everything from lobster rolls to smoked trout dip starters. Oysters will be in high demand no doubt, along with mains like sesame-crusted tuna and a whitefish milanese. Then there’s the wine list which is extensive to say the least, plus a craft beer collection and full bar.

Bottlefish opens today for dinner, keeping hours from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. most days, with an extension to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday night.
