San Francisco for two days

Dave S. Nov 9, 2012 03:51 AM

I'll be staying near Union Square next week and have two days to explore the city by myself. I'm eager to eat good seafood, especially oysters, as well as any "signature" dishes. High end or low end is not an issue -- I'm looking for suggestions for the should not miss food and good places to have a glass or two of really good wine. Thanks.

    Tadich Grill and Sam's Grill are the 2 "old-school' seafood restaurants in San Francisco. They are a 10-15 minute walk from Union Square. Plouf is another seafood restaurant (right next to Sam's) that specializes in mussels. Tadich has a long bar that is perfect for single diners.

    I would strongly suggest going to the upper right-hand corner of this page and doing searches for Union Square, oysters and seafood. You will find many past threads with plenty of helpful suggestions and recommendations already here for you to review.

      Thanks. I did search, but did not see the one you linked to. Exactly the advice I am looking for.
