San Francisco by way of Stomach




My brother and his bride were in San Francisco last month enjoying the sweet life. Per his correspondence, their greatest culinary escapade was the evening they doubled down on dinner, initially knocking out three dozen oysters at Hog Island Oyster Company, rolling sideways into the Slanted Door for round two, and ultimately leaking into the Tunnel Top bar for nightcaps. 

I tried to pare these down but really what's the point; the first bite is with your eyes, so might as well feast them on something good...
