Tadich Grill

240 California Street, San Francisco, CA - (415) 391-1849
Tadich Grill, located in the Financial District of San Francisco, remains a classic, old-time seafood restaurant. It's considered to be the oldest restaurant in San Francisco. Cioppino features a generous serving of clams, mussels, bay shrimp, prawns, scallops, crab meat, and fish in a thick, hearty tomato stock. It arrives at the table piping hot with toasted garlic bread, the perfect cold weather dish.

The hangtown fry, which the menu describes as an oyster and bacon frittata, is a Bay area favorite.
