Will be in the Bay Area this weekend and plan on grabbing some Cioppino while there. My default version is usually Scoma's; however, a friend of mine was recently there and thought that it was not up to their normal standards, i.e., the fish was extremely fresh but the broth was a bit off. Perhaps is was just an off night? Given that we have so few meals this weekend, I don't want to waste one, particularly because I hold Scoma's version in such high regard. If not Scoma's, I will head to Sotto Mare. Is there a current concensus as to where the best version is currently found? The Board seems to identify Scoma's, Sotto Mare and Tadich as the three players. Thanks in advance.
