New Yorker Coming to San Fran for a Few Days
Any recs for good seafood or oyster bars?
And also sushi...
(afforable would be great for either of these things but i am always ready to pay for deliciousness...)
There's a nice little place called Bar Crudo, just a few blocks off Union Square, on top of the Stockton Tunnel. They have a selection of shellfish, crudo, and some cold/hot entrees. Also a wine and beer list with several Belgian beers.
At their website (www.barcrudo.com), you can find a slightly outdated but more-or-less correct menu, to see if it's what you're looking for.
Keep in mind that it is a small place (only holds about 30 people, and close to 10 of those seats are bar seats), so it's good to consider reservations, unless you're going very early in the evening. I've found it to be a comfortable place for a single diner or a small group.

search for sushi on the board, or maybe give some parameters (location, price, atmosphere).
For oysters - hog island, swan oyster depot, or the bar at zuni.
re: Robert Lauriston
Maybe a California type of Sushi place like Sushi Ran in Sausalito might be fun or Blowfish Sushi To Die For -2170 Bryant St (Cross Street: 20th Street)
Bar Crudo as mentioned
Bar Tartine- has a very SF feel
Weird Fish- has a village feel, super affordable, no oysters.
Zuni- has great oysters alway fresh
Thanks everyone. I am going to try Hog Island and Bar Crudo. I guess I can always find compelling reasons to east sushi but I have been told that CA sushi is different.
I will let you know.
another possibility depending on where you are, is Blue Pointe, on Kearny between Bush and Sutter. It's a swanky, loungey place that had wonderful oysters that last time I was there. Other food is middling to good, but the oysters were lovely. This place would provide a very different sort of vibe than the other places listed.
