Bar Crudo


in The Haight & Hayes Valley

An international idea that's pure California: choice seafood served raw in the Italian style, with pan-Asian condiments and East–West beers. Start with Japanese Hitachino white ale with velvety avocado-uni (sea urchin) toast and graduate to potent Belgian Tripel ales with crudo platters featuring horseradish-spiked Arctic char. Happy-hour specials include $1.50 oysters, $8 chowder and $7 wine (5pm to 6:30pm).
