Case in point: the 3600 block of 18th Street in the Mission, which has quietly stuffed itself with culinary landmarks for prosciutto pizza, morning buns, homemade ice cream and house-rolled pasta.
Well, you'll be happy to know that there's a new gem set to bring a little surf to the mix.
Introducing Ebb and Flow, a white-tablecloth seafood shanty opening in the Mission's gourmet ghetto for lunch and dinner starting this Wednesday.
On those days when a laid-back California seafood shack is the only kind of seafood shack that will do, Ebb is your spot—decked out with vintage navigational charts of the Bay, plenty of dock wood and fishnet-covered murals of...fish.
Drop in on the mosaic-tiled bar for oysters, raw bar and pints of Oregon's Eel River ale (the whole beer list hails from the West Coast). If you happen to have brought a date (we would never bet against you), grab a table under the fish mural and order a warming bowl of chowder or some fish 'n' chips, or just go right for the whole-roasted sea bass—all pulled fresh off boats sailing the Pacific from Baja to Alaska.
And while you could walk a half-block to Bi-Rite for ice cream, you'll be happy to know they're serving scoops of favorites like roasted banana and salted caramel here.
Proving once and for all that more is definitely more.
