San Francisco: Fog Harbor Fish House

On the first night of our Staycation, we dined at Pier 39.  After, we strolled the pier and checked out the shops.  My favorite is still the magic shop. 

Fog Harbor Fish House  On Level Two, (415) 421-2442.  L-D M-Sat; $$.  You can rest easy and fully enjoy your meal here because all seafood on the menu is sustainable.  Located near the pier entrance, the expansive white-tablecloth dining room offers bay views from most seats, which come in the form of window-side tables and raised booths (both regular and half-moon).  We started with a cup of clam chowder (also available in a sourdough bread bowl) and an iceberg lettuce wedge topped with Pt. Reyes blue cheese dressing.  Addictive Boudin sourdough bread is freshly baked in-house.  EntrĂ©e choices include everything from wild salmon to whole Dungeness crab to fresh lobster, but my heart said fried shrimp with thin french fries and a tangy coleslaw with horseradish dressing.  My husband bibbed up and dove into a massive seafood cioppino.  Steaks and pastas are also options.  Our drinks of choice were a yummy Alcatraz Escape cocktail for me (coconut and dark rums mixed with orange and pineapple juices and some grenadine) and
a tasty Oregon Pinot Noir from RouteStock for my mate.  Desserts are housemade and samples are brought out on a tray to contemplate—hmmm, should we have a heavy one (bread pudding topped with ice cream) or a light one (raspberry sorbet)?  And all the while we enjoyed watching the changing light of the evening view.
