The walls at Currylicious exude the same orange and yellow hues as saffron and turmeric, which flavor its traditional Indian dishes. Appetizers include hearty veggie samosas and the kachumar salad, an intermingling of fresh garden veggies, herbs, and lime juice. Entrees such as chicken shahi korma and lamb karahi cool down spice with infusions of yogurt sauce and side helpings of naan. During pleasant weather, diners can sit outside, where they take in Oakland’s scenic landscape, or season their meals with crushed sunshine.

When Skates on the Bay says its seating is on the water, it really means it. The restaurant juts out from the shore and extends on stilts into the bay, its floor-to-ceiling windows framing a landscape of sun, sea, and sailboats gracefully toward the marina or away from sea monsters' mouths.

Naturally, Skates' chefs specialize in local seafood. Alongside classics such as fresh oysters on the half shell and chowder made with Pacific Northwest clams, the chefs get creative. Here, for instance, nigiri might mean Applewood-perfumed scallops with smoked sea salt, or flame-charred halibut with shredded daikon. The menu also includes land-based options, such as char-grilled pork chops stuffed with Bing cherries and wild mushroom and grilled filet medallions oscar style, served with asparagus and crab with b?arnaise sauce

Each hibachi dinner comes with a shrimp appetizer, a bowl of soup, and a salad with organic Hana dressing imported from Japan.

The Old Clam House: A User’s Guide

Since 1861 | One of SF’s Oldest | Classic Seafood Dishes | Popular Cioppino

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: crispy Dungeness crab cakes
  • Entree: clambake cioppino with four kinds of shellfish, calamari, and fish
  • Dessert: chocolate-truffle mousse cake
  • Specialty cocktail: Fish Bait—peach whiskey, orange juice, and peach nectar

History: Legend has it that when the eatery originally opened, as The Oakdale Bar and Clam House, the structure stood completely on the water—until the earthquake in 1906 filled the Bay. Since then, the restaurant’s gone through many changes, yet still stands on the same ground, making it SF’s oldest restaurant still operating in its original location. When the current owners took over, they renovated the interior, yet kept the menu’s most-loved dishes, such as the cioppino and the cup of hot clam broth that greets each diner upon arrival.

While You’re Waiting

  • Have a seat at the bar, which stands in the restaurant’s original structure, and see if you can conjure up the ghost of someone who voted for Abe Lincoln.
  • Check out the old-timey photos; many are of the restaurant in its earliest days.

Inside Tip: Try the clam chowder; it’s made with a recipe from The Oakdale Bar and Clam, dating back to the late 1800s.
