America's Classics: Traci Des Jardins on San Francisco's Swan Oyster DepotJBF Editors

Swan Oyster Depot
This is my go-to place for cracked crab and oysters. It oozes San Francisco history and you can see it in the generational forces working here and the pictures on the wall. I’ve been eating here for more than twenty years, and it's a must-stop when in SF for a light lunch of local favorites: Dungeness crab, Tomales Bay oysters, and a bright and clean Sauvignon Blanc to go with.
