Tadich Grill

IMG_7250


I wanted to post some photos from lunch on Tuesday at Tadich Grill, the oldest restaurant in San Francisco. Apparently it was established in 1849, although the location on California is definitely not the original spot. I don't know if I can officially back this spot up as a, 'Places to Visit' worthy restaurant but - it's definitely of note. It's truly an old fashioned, no frills kind of place. I don't know what dinner is like, but at noon it's a very boy's club high power business exec. lunch meeting type of place. Interpret that to be good or bad as you wish.

The menu is predominately seafood based, of course I'm really allergic to seafood, but I mostly just wanted to go here for the interiors - dark wood and the Art Deco light fixtures. If I wasn't wearing my pink 20s dress that day (the weather was truly just too chilly for it) then at least I could spend some time in a place that reminded me of the 20s. And they call themselves "The Original Cold Day Restaurant" - pretty perfect for my 30s tweed fox hunting coat and a chilly over cast early afternoon.

Cheesy photos at Tadich Grill


I tried to take as many sneaky photos as I could - but there's so many waiters walking around all the time it was hard not to feel like a tourist. Here's a photo I stole from yelp - I wish we would have eaten lunch at that bar instead of at a table, but maybe next time...
