Hog Island Oyster Co. Restaurant Review

: Oyster enthusiasts flock to this lively bar and surrounding tables with a pristine view of the bay, located within the San Francisco Ferry Building. The company's sustainably raised, freshly-shucked Sweetwaters are worth experiencing alone or with a variety of Atlantic and West Coast oysters such as tiny Kumamotos or rich Belons. Signature Hog Wash is a twist on traditional mignonette with the addition of cilantro and rice wine vinegar. For those averse to raw oysters, Sweetwaters can also come baked with a sweet-tart beurre blanc, or else barbecued, showered with shallots and smoky bacon Casino-style or cooked in a hearty stew. Diners can also opt for creamy Manila clam chowder for a satisfying lunch. The amiable staff is more than happy to direct guests through the shellfish-friendly wine list and many locally brewed beers on tap. Don't miss half-price oysters and beer and wine specials at the oyster happy hour on Mondays and Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
