Since humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish naturally taste delicious. For $20, today’s Groupon gets you $40 worth of seafood at Yabbies Coastal Kitchen, a Zagat-approved eatery anchored in Russian Hill.
Yabbies' soft lighting sets the mood for diving into dishes featuring local, fresh ingredients from area farmers' markets and fishermen. Like the walrus and the carpenter, you can slurp up delicious oysters from the raw bar, such as the bi-polar Pearl Point Washingtons ($2), a salty and sweet taste with cucumber finish, or the fruity Point Reyes ($2). Starters follow suit with sea meats such as warm baby octopus ($10) and half roasted Dungeness crab ($22). For a main course, Yabbies' menu includes oceanic treats including halibut with fava beans and pesto gnocchi ($22), sesame-crusted ahi tuna ($21), and bacon-wrapped Idaho trout glazed with a light mustard sauce ($19).
In addition to being food, fish can help boost your smarts and make your hair stronger, healthier, and less likely to leave your head for another, younger head. Yabbies is open Monday through Thursday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
- The raw bar is still one of the city’s best, with oysters and clams on the half-shell as well as chilled crustaceans, sashimi and the famous combo seafood platters. – Gayot
- I've been to Yabbie's often before, and have always loved the consistently good food, but recently the great ambiance has made it a regular haunt- mood lighting and music make it the spot to be! Loved the wine flights too, well selected and reasonably priced, and served by informed (and attractive) staff. – sfsaavy, Citysearch
- Very attentive service. Good place for oysters--they were very fresh. Varied and interesting menu. – OpenTable user who dined on 12/31/2009
