A thriving oyster farm north of San Francisco in Tomales Bay serves up its harvest at this newly expanded raw bar and restaurant in the Ferry Building. Devotees come here for impeccably fresh oysters and clams on the half shell. Other mollusk-centered options include a first-rate oyster stew, baked oysters, clam chowder, and "steamer" dishes atop of a bed of local greens. The bar also turns out one of the city's best grilled-cheese sandwiches, made with three artisanal cheeses on artisanal bread.
