I'm looking for noteworthy cioppino in S.F. or Berkeley/Oakland area. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

  1. You have to go where they invented it.

    Tadich Grill
    240 California Street, San Francisco, CA (Between Battery and Front Streets)
    415-391-1849

    Place has been around for 140 years. GO. EAT.

    1. I'll second Jason's rec of Tadich. Best time to go is either late lunch, 2pm-ish, as there's an early line for lunch or for dinner when the Financial District is deserted. And, bring cash.

        If I might stick my two cents in - I wholeheartedly say amen to the Tadich and I recommend having the cioppino at the far end of the bar where they serve food. Somehow it tastes better there. They have a very lovely wine selection as well. Sitting at the bar you get a floor show as you can see into the kitchen and also the waiters will kibbitz with you.

          Ooooooh! I think I need to sneak in there for dinner soon.

          Also thought of another old timer - the Old Clam House down on Bayshore. I like those complimentary cups of steaming hot clam broth and the sourdough is late baked. Cioppino isn't as good though...
