NYC 'Hound - Is it possible that Scoma's is any good?

The Turtle (Bay) Dove | May 14, 200208:27 AM     13

What a treat it's been reading the SF board for the last few months ever since I made plans to visit this June for the first time. I can't wait to see the suprised look on my friend's face when I pull out the folder of possibile eating establishments (I wrote restaurants at first, but do taco stands count as restaurants?) that I've put together from this board - after all, it's only a 4 day visit! Then again, she knows I'm a devoted Chowhound - maybe she's expecting it.

But I do have a question. My father swears that I have to go to Scoma's on Fisherman's Wharf to have cioppino. And I have to say that if it was almost anybody else making the recommendation, I'd smile and nod and think (snobishly) "I'm not *that* kind of tourist." But I trust my father absolutely on food. He's a complete chowhound at heart AND we have identical tastes. I can't remember the last time we were in a restaurant together and didn't want to order the same things. After all, he prefaced the recommendation with "I know it's hard to believe you should go to a tourist restaurant in tourist central." Which means I'm probably going no matter what. Still, I only have four days. Is it really possible that Scoma's cioppino is worth precious eating time?

Thanks, Joanna
