Until the local dungeness crab season opens, Capurro’s has contracted with a group of fishermen from Washington State to source their fresh, live dungeness crabs on a daily basis. Although not from local waters, the crabs will be received live and cooked in-house daily.
Judging by the number of house recipes on their menu, the only shortcut that the chefs at Capurro's believe in is the fishing line that hooks their daily specials. A permit allows for the chefs to purchase fresh seafood directly from the local fishing fleet. Pasta—from lobster ravioli to crab rotini—provides a bed for recently netted morsels, just as discs of hand-tossed pizza dough cushion toppings of california black mussels and italian sausage. Those who prefer uninterrupted bites of seafood can indulge in a whole or half-portion of dungeness crab, served woodstone-roasted with a white-wine-garlic sauce. Signature touches typify even the fish and chips staple: Capurro's cod is battered in firestone double-barrel ale before being served with tartar sauce and fries.
The Capurro family, which comprises much of the restaurant staff under patriarch Paul, has perfected these entrees over 66 years in business. Their convivial spirit and commitment to cooking fresh, locally caught seafood still unflaggingly defines the venue. Though their kitchen embraces San Francisco traditions, such as hearty cioppino stews, it also preps more modern oceanic eats, including fish tacos and barbecued oysters that each have their own Twitter page.
