San Francisco's Best Cioppino: Tadich Grill
At this spot, founded, oh, around the same time as cioppino, waiters still wear white coats, aprons, and ties. Cioppino is Tadich Grill’s top-selling entrée, whether for the de-shelled crab, the spicy finish, or the butter-soaked garlic bread made from a sweet roll Boudin bakes exclusively for this legendary restaurant. 240 California St. This appeared in the November/December 2015 issue

Tadich Grill: A San Francisco Classic for Seafood
From its waiters in crisp white jackets to the bowl of lemon wedges adorning each table, Tadich Grill is an unabashed San Francisco classic. Go for the seafood: sand dabs (breaded and sautéed), crab Louie, or the much-loved cioppino. The Hangtown fry (oysters and bacon scrambled with eggs) has been on the menu since Tadich first opened in 1849, feeding hungry gold miners. No reservations are accepted, and the place gets crowded. Hustle up to the bar and get a martini while you wait.

San Francisco's Oldest Restaurant
No one would call a 158-year-old restaurant with wood paneling, brass fixtures, and waiters wrapped in starched, white aprons trendy, but in San Francisco there is novelty in the classics, and Tadich Grill is THE classic. It's packed day and night with regulars and visitors, despite a hard-line (and sometimes maddening) no-reservations policy. A flip through the restaurant's autograph book in which names such as Johnny Carson, Tim Burton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Joe Montana are scrawled proves that even the who’s who are just like you and me at Tadich Grill. The late Chronicle columnist and unabashed lover of San Francisco, Herb Caen, was also a frequent visitor. There's a martini named after him at the bar, made with vodka, or as he called it: Vitamin V. It helps that the food is consistent, too. No need to tinker with the fried sand dabs or Crab Louie, and the oysters and Hangtown Fry are fine the way they always have been. The Cioppino is by far the most popular dish on the menu, with about 27,000 bowls per year dished out. People continue to come to Tadich Grill because they know what they're getting, and that is, along with the friendly service and some of the best seafood in town, a taste of San Francisco itself.
