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. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Find some new place settings at the Heritage House Tableware show room (2190 Palou Avenue), where more than 1,900 patterns are on display. After: See what’s in season at the Bayshore Farmers Market (300 Bayshore Boulevard).

Colibri Mexican Bistro: A User’s Guide Fresh Mexican Cuisine | Local Ingredients | 1900s Cantina | Tapas-Style Plates | 300+ Tequilas Sample Menu Starter: guacamole prepared tableside to your spice specifications Entree: chicken with mole poblano made of chilies, nuts, and chocolate Dessert: churros filled with caramel cream and served with ice cream What to Drink: Zagat reviewers rave about the Macho Margarita, which blends sweet and spicy thanks to the addition of muddled jalapeños. Where to Sit: Try to land one of the plush booths and avoid the tables near the open kitchen—a high-traffic zone. While You’re Waiting: Head to the bar area and watch the 1940s Latin film clips playing on the TVs. The Vibe: Classic Spanish paintings adorn gold and red walls, and uniquely shaped tequila bottles punctuate a space that’s reminiscent of Mexico City restaurants in the early 1900s. Vocab Lesson Mole: there are many regional varieties of this rich sauce, but chilies, spices, and mexican chocolate are the most common ingredients. It’s typically served atop poultry or pork. Colibri: Spanish for "hummingbird." How to Get There: Colibri's location in the heart of the Theatre District means traffic and parking can be problematic. However, the Powell Street BART Station is just a couple blocks away.

When to Go: Stop by during happy hour (Monday–Thursday from 4–6 p.m.) for discounts on beers, mixed platters, and pitchers of sangria. Inside Tip: The restaurant only has 10 tables and doesn’t accept reservations. To avoid long waits, place your order online before arriving. Vocab Lesson Picadillo: a Latin American take on hash that typically blends ground beef, tomatoes, and various vegetables and spices. Tostones: fried slices of unripe plantain; a common side dish in Latin America. While You're in the Neighborhood Before: Browse retro fashions at La Rosa Vintage (1711 Haight Street)—rumored to be burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese’s favorite vintage shop.

The Three Faces of B Restaurant and Bar Inventive Cocktails B Restaurant is committed to integrating local, seasonal ingredients into their food menu, and you can see the kitchen’s influence on the drink list. Mixologists reach beyond typical barroom ingredients to create experiments that feel downright culinary. Take the sweet and savory Bourbon & Berry, infused with balsamic vinegar and maple syrup, or the Rad Rabbit with rye whiskey, manzanilla sherry, benedictine, and a porter reduction. Raw Bar Though the restaurant serves a full menu, the raw bar is a main attraction thanks thanks to its daily selection of oysters available by the half or full dozen. During B Restaurant’s annual outdoor Oyster Bash, attendees can pluck oysters from a rowboat full of ice and then shuck them on a newspaper-covered table stocked with limes, hot sauce, crackers, and corn cobs. If you can’t make it to the Bash, pop in for $1 oysters during happy hour (Tuesday–Friday, 4:30 p.m.–6:30 p.m.). Panoramic Views Tucked away amid some of downtown’s most distinctive buildings, B Restaurant was built with views in mind, thanks in part to its soaring windows and sunny patio. According to the San Francisco Examiner, the “airy, elegant atrium provides a fitting contrast to commanding architectural icons as diverse as the Contemporary Jewish Museum, historic St. Patrick Church and gleaming Marriott Marquis hotel.” The restaurant’s own stunning, modern design complements SFMOMA and the Yerba Buena Center of the Arts, also nearby.

Where to Sit: Grab a booth facing the front wall of windows in the cozy, canary-yellow dining room. While You’re Waiting Bask in the aromas of prosciutto and pepperoni wafting out of the wood-fired pizza oven. Dip complimentary bread into olive oil. Inside Tips Gluten-free pasta is available upon request. Despite the classiness of the low lights and wine bottles, feel free to wear your jeans. While You’re in the Neighborhood: After dinner, head across the street for a game of pool and a discussion on the merits of Epicureanism at the Philosophers Club (824 Ulloa Street).

Located firmly within San Francisco's Castro district, 2362 Market Street is steeped in city history. Here, Catch makes its mark in a storefront registered as an official city landmark that originally housed the burgeoning NAMES Project, which famously organized the creation of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. The history remains with the building, but Catch aims to create a new legacy while honoring the spirit of creativity and expression rooted in its surroundings. To foster this spirit, the chefs rotate their menus regularly, accommodating seasonal produce and fresh catches of local, sustainably sourced seafood. Each dish showcases these ingredients while incorporating Mediterranean influences and minimalist Californian sensibilities toward composition and presentation. A hearty bowl of mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops, crab, and fresh fish in a tomato broth evokes the flavors of portuguese stew, and the pizzas emerge with inspired toppings, such as smoked salmon and cr?me fra?che. The air of refined simplicity also extends to the dining room's decor. Cherry-wood tables line the tiled floors and surround the small, circular fireplace that helps heat the enclosed patio section. Two works of vibrantly colored wall art originals add a taste of whimsy to the space, as does the balcony-like stage that sits suspended 10 feet above the ground, dominating an entire corner of the room. A full piano resides on the stage, beckoning the live jazz bands that perform on Fridays and Saturdays for diners and brave souls who would like to make their seafood meals feel at home by playing sea shanties of yore.
