Bar Crudo, SF report

We went to Bar Crudo after seeing the show Shopping! The Musical. It's in the Union Square area so very walkable from Powell Bart Station.

Bar Crudo is at 603 Bush St (@ Stockton). It's a small place with 2 bar area & an upstairs loft dining area. The lady told us that the upstairs was full so we sat at the bar that's closest to the window. There's only 5 stools there, and we got 2 seats with our backs to the window.

Since we had eaten an earlier dinner, we weren't starving, just wanted some snacks. That's the best way to eat there because seafood is Expensive and the servings are not that big.

Free bread & butter was given, and tap water which they flavor with cucumber. I thought the bread was kinda stale tasting and served cold, butter average. Water was fine.

We got the 8 pic Crudo Sample for 2 which was $22. That's 8 small pieces people! I enjoyed them all. It's 2 pcs of Artic char, 2 pics of butterfish, 2 pcs of scallop, & 2 pcs of tombo tuna.

We also got the hot steamed manila clams & mussels that comes w/ baby artichokes, pancetta, fresno chile $12. It was a nice big bowl of all the above. Nice, but salty. The bread was good to sop up the sauce with.

Husband got a glass of White wine: Muscadet, Chateau de La Ragotiere, Loire Valley 2006 for $8 a glass. He liked it.

$22 sampler
$12 steamed clams
$ 9 wine

$43
3.66 tax
-------
$46.66 before tip, credit cards taken.

One unisex bathroom in the back of the restaurant on the Left-side. Tiniest sink ever. Toilet paper is way behind you when u sit down!

Waitress was nice enough, but it took forever to get our dishes. Don't go here Hungry, best to eat somewhere else and only come here for a seafood snack. If you don't eat seafood, don't go here because that's all they got. No chicken, beef, & no desserts.
