Where to buy cockles (and seafood in general) in Los Angeles?

UPDATE: Seafood City on Vermont does not carry cockles. The search continues. Thanks to all for the suggestions.

Thanks! For anyone who might read this in the future, you won't find it by Google mapping "IMP". It's International Marine Products; more here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/international...

EDIT: I just read that they no longer deal with the public sector. Wholesale only. Any other suggestions?

What are your recommendations for the best place to purchase cockles? And other creatures of the sea for that matter. Preferably Mid-City but willing to schlep.

How can you tell when buttermilk is bad? [moved from Home Cooking board]

Evidently the orange chunks are bacteria.

Suggestions for coffee & alcohol alternative meetup for first/blind date on the East side?

Let's say I've got this friend who can't drink coffee or alcohol anymore due to deleterious physical effects though he may be able to drink both again in the future. Let's also say that this friend is on the dating circuit and trying to avoid the awkwardness of inviting someone to meet him at a bar and only ordering a soda water with a lime wedge. Does anybody have suggestions for a coffee shop/bar alternative that has ambiance suitable for a first/blind date? Like a tea house or something. Or perhaps a recommendation on a classy non-alcoholic cocktail? On the East side, preferably, and not necessarily a place to get a meal in case it doesn't go well.

And thanks!

What to eat at Moreton Fig?

Going to Moreton Fig on USC campus tomorrow night with some co-workers. I'm skeptical. Any suggestions on what to order? I'll eat anything, but looking for that Chowhoud stamp of approval.

I'm currently obsessed with this Belgiian wonder, Three Philosophers. Does anyone know a bar in Long Beach and the surrounding area that serves it?

Amazing Fresh Produce near Central and 5th Downtown LA?

Do you (or your friend) mean Grand Central Market? On Broadway and 3rd?

Why don't you just ask your friend for the address?
If you find out about this secret market, let us all know.

Suggestion for a Buddhist/Chinese/Taiwanese vegetarian restuarant near Chinatown/Downtown?

I lived in Taiwan for awhile and ate the best food at the Buddhist restaurants there and would love to find something similar in LA. And on the East side as that's closer to home. Any suggestions?

Locally grown grub in Orange County?

Does anyone know of any restaurants that serve locally grown food? Or at least make an effort to support local agriculture? I ask because I'm looking for a steakhouse and when I check out the websites of various restaurants they all advertise mid-Western beef. I don't want my meat to travel so far to my plate.

In search of great steak in OC

Next Sunday is my partner's birthday. And every year she eats a steak. We are new to Orange County and I'm at a loss to find a place. Any recommendations? Something in the $20-$40 range.

chowworthy restaurants in Charlottesville, VA? [Moved from DC/Baltimore board]

The ice cream shop is called Chaps and is a C'ville fixture. Very good, very fat ice cream.
