  • Tadich Grill
    Tadich Grill: A User’s Guide In Business Since 1849 | Classic Cocktails | Traditional Seafood Stew | Casual Counter Service Sample Menu Appetizer: Pacific oysters rockefeller, served topped with creamed spinach and a four-cheese blend Main: seafood cioppino Dessert: bourbon bread pudding Drink: Manhattan, made with Old Crow bourbon whiskey, Cinzano sweet vermouth, and two dashes of bitters The Vibe: Brass and milk-glass light fixtures hang from the restaurant's ceiling, casting a warm glow over a wooden bar that stretches from the front door all the way back to the kitchen. On the other side, diners relax at tables covered in white tablecloths and private booths built right into the walls. By the Numbers 1849: the year Tadich Grill opened 1920s: the decade Tadich’s chefs started to broil seafood over mesquite charcoal 22,000+ orders of seafood cioppino served here each year 33 years—the average number that a Tadich Grill server has worked in the industry Inside Tips The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, so plan for a wait. The shortest wait times are between 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. If you’re flying solo or as a couple, pull up a stool at the counter, where the turnover is much quicker than the dining room. The Seafood cioppino is best during crab season: November to May. Take a bit of Tadich home: The restaurant sells a recipe book as well as their signature bloody mary mix. Vocab Lesson Cioppino: a fish stew that originated in San Francisco, it’s made with the catch of the day, typically a combination of fish and shellfish. Praise and Accolades During an episode of No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain dined on a “wonderful” Hangtown Fry—an omelet with oysters and bacon—and washed it down with a martini. Fodor’s notes that the “white-coated waiters are a throwback to another time, and the old-school bartenders serve up martinis as good as the mollusks.” Tadich Grill has starred in numerous Food Network shows, including The Best Thing I Ever Ate. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Tour the local works at Art People (50 Post Street). After: See the current play at The Cutting Ball Theater (277 Taylor Street). If You Can’t Make It, Try This: the hand-raised shellfish at Hog Island Oyster Co. (1 Ferry Building, Shop 11).

  • Velvet Cantina
    “Elixirs” and “Edibles,” boasts the gaudy signs out front, and that’s what keeps people coming back to this darkly wonderful Mexican restaurant time and again. Forget true interpretations of Mexican classics; Velvet Cantina is about subversion, in their menu and inside the restaurant. Tall, looming booths swallow up visiting birthday party groups, and the deep red hue that serves as the only light in the place is perhaps better suited to a film developer’s lab than a true cantina. Mirrored walls give an unending depth to the place, while outsized pitchers of margaritas – made with organic juices, naturally – seem equally bottomless. Velvet Cantina is not the place for pitch-perfect chilaquiles or plates of outstanding carnitas – rather, it’s the after-work and occasional weekend party spot for locals looking to escape for a while. Be it into a booth, a pitcher of margaritas or a plate of Americanized Mexican food. Velvet Cantina: A User’s Guide Contemporary Latin Cuisine | Fresh Lime Margaritas | 60+ Tequilas | S’Mores Nachos | Sultry Atmosphere Sample Menu Appetizer: ceviche of white fish and shrimp Entree: avocado-cactus enchiladas with jalapeño-cream sauce Dessert: s’mores nachos—fried tortilla strips with crushed graham crackers, Mexican chocolate, and flaming marshmallows To Drink: More than 60 tequilas make an appearance in margaritas made with fresh, organic lime juice. Guests can also sample mango-infused tequilas or cucumber gimlets spiced with serrano chilies. The Vibe: According to Amanda Berne of SFGate, the atmosphere is “dark, rather sultry and could pass as a bordello—in a good way.” Where to Sit: Although the Velvet Cantina has two low-lit dining areas surrounded in warm red hues and copper lighting, the bar area is regularly recommended for its oversize booths and views of the bartenders at work. When to Go: Weekend crowds tend to be large and boisterous. For a calmer, more casual meal, try stopping by during the workweek. While You’re Waiting Bob your head to the soundtrack of club-style music. Inspect the mural of elegantly dressed women striking provocative poses. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Scour the collection of rare and vintage LPs at Explorist International (3174 24th Street). After: Catch a jazz or indie-rock concert at Red Poppy Art House (2698 Folsom Street), a micro-venue dedicated to promoting local art and culture.

  • Thanh Long
    Thanh Long Since opening in 1971, Thanh Long has earned a spot as a destination restaurant amongst San Francisco’s bustling culinary community. The secret to this success lies in its unique Vietnamese fusion cuisine. Chefs combine Southeast Asian flavors with West Coast ingredients to create a lineup of signature dishes ranging from simple garlic noodles to Shaken beef. The true highlight of the menu, however, is the whole roasted dungeness crab. This dish, found on the Secret Kitchen Menu, is prepared three ways. For the first method, cooks roast a whole, in-shell crab in a blend of garlic sauce and a secret combination of spices. For the second preparation, affectionately dubbed drunken crab, they simmer the freshly roasted crab in a blend of chardonnay, sake, and brandy seasoned with scallions, chives, and black pepper. The third and final way produces a distinctly tropical taste, which the cooks create by simmering the crab in a sauce of roma tomatoes, fresh dill, and tamarind before flambeing it in cognac. The Dungeness Crab: Named for the town of Dungeness, Washington where it was first harvested, the dungeness crab has been a feature of West Coast dining for years. Large and meaty, it readily competes with its East Coast counterparts from crab country for the title of most beloved shellfish. Many San Francisco restaurants offer their own take on the dungeness, but Thanh Long’s preparations features uniquely Vietnamese flavors. Learn a little more about this seafood staple below: Habitat: The crabs prefer the shelter of eel-grass beds and muddy waters, and can be found anywhere from beaches to ocean floors 600 feet below sea level. Though they can be found in numerous locations, including the Aleutian Islands in Alaska and south of San Francisco, the mouth of the Dungeness River remains one of the most popular breeding grounds. Harvesting Methods: To catch these tasty crustaceans, harvesters primarily use crab pots, ring nets, and long- or short-handled dip nets depending on how deep they need to go. Once a year in early fall, crabbers also hunt the dungeness with a hook and line at the mouth of the Dungeness River. Regulations: Strict federal regulations, which vary according to season and region, help preserve the dungeness population against over-harvesting. For instance, crabbers at Puget Sound may only take five male crabs per day, and only crabs that measure at least 6.25 inches. Cooking: The most prominent preparation method for a dungeness crab is to place it into a boiling pot of salted water for approximately 20 minutes while it’s alive or freshly dead. That being said, eateries up and down the coast offer their own variations on whole crab preparation.
