Fresh Shucked Oysters on Ice
New York has the oyster bar in grand central station, in San Francisco we have the legendary Swan Oyster Depot. It has a amazing selection of very fresh fish and shellfish available to eat in a variety of ways including salads, soups and raw on ice. The restaurant only has maybe twenty seats at a long counter where the guys take your order and prepare your food in front of you. I went with a dozen local oysters then finished with a cold local crab and shrimp salad, it was all locally fresh and very good.
