Fodor's Expert Review Fog City

$$ Embarcadero American

All but hidden on a far-flung stretch of the Embarcadero halfway between the Ferry Building and Pier 39, this 21st-century diner that’s well worth the hike is best known for its updated classics. An inviting U-shape bar and tables-with-a-view attract a mix of FiDi (Financial District) locals and tourists who’ve wandered off the main sightseeing path into an excellent spot for great eats and to escape the crowds.
