Chef Francis Hogan reviews Royal platter at Farallon
$$$$ | Seafood | Modern | American | Takes Reservations
Union Square, Financial District
"Sometimes you want shellfish, and you want to splurge. San Francisco's king of high-end seafood, Farallon, showcases the best oysters, clams, crab, and lobster from both coasts. The best way to navigate this Poseidonic bounty is with their over the top Royal Platter. Like everything at Farallon, it changes with the seasons, but you can be sure you'll get a tower of the freshest raw and poached shellfish in an assortment of ceviches, tartares, and crudos. A bottle of bubbly rosé, and you’re set. "
