Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ Neptune’s Net

[dropcap size=big]C[/dropcap]ompared to other seaside cities, L.A. hasn’t had much of a seafood culture in modern times. Maybe it’s because we take it for granted, maybe it’s because Santa Monica Bay is often polluted beyond belief. (Oh, those two things are related, aren’t they.) But, we are blessed by Neptune’s Net, all the way up in the northern reaches of Malibu, across the street from the ocean. Though you’ve almost certainly seen it in movies, the outdoor restaurant is not at all pretentious. It’s a popular stop for motorcycle clubs — the friendly kind. Once you weave your way through the bikes and past the be-leathered folks who ride them, you’ll be faced with a choice: the fry side or the steam side. The former is where deep-fried seafood and items like the (really quite delicious) pineapple-shrimp tacos are ordered, while the latter is for crab claws and peel-and-eat shrimp.
