What began as a coffee stand during the California Gold Rush, Tadich Grill is now an energetic seafood restaurant, although they’ve kept the original mahogany bar from 1849. Staying true to a no-nonsense charm, the historic eatery turns out classic West Coast seafood specialties accompanied by big plates of the city’s signature sourdough bread.
