Swan Oyster Depot
1517 Polk Street
Jane and Michael Stern rave about the impeccably fresh and lush seafood at San Francisco's Swan Oyster Depot. Included in the offerings at this fish market and restaurant combo - a favorite of legendary food writer M.F.K. Fisher - are succulent fresh oysters, Dungeness crab, and wonderful Boston-style chowder, all accompanied by a chunk of sourdough bread. There's not a lot of cooking going on here, but there's lots of fresh seafood. It's a popular place so expect to wait for a table.
