Moss Beach Distillery
The Moss Beach Distillery is a little piece of history. It's not an actual distillery, but the restaurant did restaurant start off as a speakeasy called "Frank's Place." It was built in the late 1920s on a cliff above a secluded beach, which was coincidentally very popular with Canadian rum-runners. It was so popular with local celebrities that San Francisco noir writer Dashiell Hammett set one of his stories there. These days, the restaurant is known for it’s delicious Sunday brunches, award-winning seafood, and its ghost. (They say that the Woman in Blue was killed while walking with her lover, a piano player at Frank's, and wanders the cliffs to this day looking for her lost love.)
