Take a short stroll from One Market Center to the Ferry Building and sit down to some of the best oysters in the city—no reservation needed. Hog Island Oyster Co. raises their own shellfish sustainably, from a farm about an hour north that is fed by the rich waters of Tomales Bay.
Fresh, grilled, barbecued or lightly seasoned, no matter how you take your oysters, they’re so fresh you’ll feel like you helped pull them out of the water, alongside a professional shucker or chef. Be sure to take a break from perusing the craft beer menu, and drink in a view of the Bay.
Exec Rec: Mark Nelsen, Visa’s Senior VP of Risk, insists that you order their signature grilled cheese sandwich with your seafood—it’s to die for.
