David Lentz’s seaside restaurant, The Hungry Cat Santa Monica Canyon, has introduced a new menu format of small and large plates designed for exploring and sharing. In addition to Lentz’ acclaimed raw bar, oyster shooters and bountiful towers of the finest and freshest seafood available, diners will be able to select from a broad variety of seasonally inspired dishes.

Small plate offerings include Rock Cod Ceviche with avocado, tangerine and Fresno chili; Salmon Crudo with meyer lemon, horseradish, fennel and trout roe; Roasted Oysters with green garlic and house-made bottarga; Grilled Octopus with Cous Cous, cucumber, flatbread and yogurt; and Johnny Cake with Smoked Trout, brussels sprout leaves, trout roe and poached egg.

Larger platters feature Grilled King Crab with buckwheat noodles, ginger and nori butter; grilled 1/2 Lobster with Saffron Rice, English peas and curry butter; The Hungry Cat’s signature Lamb n Clams with merguez sausage, manila clams, sofrito, charred broccoli and harissa aioli; and Dry Aged Manhattan Prime Steak with french fries and maître d’ butter. Devotees will still be able to order The Hungry Cat classic Lobster Roll and award-winning Pug Burger and the best Santa Barbara Sea Urchin. Also new is a list of six sides to complement the menu.

Lentz’s menu will continue to change with the market several times a year. The inspired bar program, a collaborative effort of The Hungry Cat bar team and David Lentz, will offer weekly specials in addition to crowd favorites – Luke’s Lemonade, Greyhound Proper, Pimlico, Disco Nap and the Bon Temps. The Hungry Cat offers Happy Hour with specialty priced drinks and ½ off oysters Monday through Friday in addition to their stellar weekend brunch.
