      Get to California Street, board west bound cable car, get off at Polk. walk 1/2 block north, wait in line at Swan Oyster Depot.

          Tadich is a pleasant 15-minute walk from Union Square -- I like to walk down Post St. and look in all the fancy store windows.

          If you're up for something not fancy and like Asian food, check out Kim Thanh - just a couple of blocks from Union Square.

          We were there during local Dungeness season, but you could check to see if they have live crab from the Pacific Northwest now...
