Blue Plate Oysterette has been a favorite on Santa Monica’s Ocean Avenue since it opened a few years ago. Now the Blue Plate empire has brought a taste of the sea to landlocked West Third Street. Blue-and-white-striped chairs freshen up the sidewalk patio, while comfy padded stools line the marble bar where several varieties of East and West coast oysters are chalked on the board. Landlubbers can choose from grilled chicken, Greek salad, a burger or steak.
