  • The blowfish at Cliff’s Edge was tried and tested by Brad Jadphe of LA Weekly. Chef Michael Bryant took over the reigns in the fall – and with his coming, the menu changed to include grilled blowfish. The Peruvian antichuco-inspired dish comes with a charred tail and a juicy fillet that is “similar to halibut cheeks and sweet like scallops or frog legs,” Bryant explains. Cliff’s Edge is located on the 3600 block of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.
