This morning I walked past the venerable Swan Oyster Depot on Polk and spotted some beautiful shad roe on display in the window. Theyre $13 per pair, fresh in today.
Stopped in for one of my favorite breakfasts too, a bowl of Boston clam chowder, $4.50, with real oyster crackers. Noticed the wine list (now on counter-top stands instead of the wall) currently includes Honig Sauvignon Blanc, Green & Red Zinfandel, and four Chardonnays from Beringer, Lewis, Ch. St. Jean Robert Young and Pahlmeyer ($85!). All available by the glass except for the Pahlmeyer.
