Swan Oyster Depot -- still amazing

Sarah | Apr 30, 2004 11:54 PM

After all is said and done, Swan Oyster Depot is truly a treasure. The seating is scandalously tight and notoriously uncomfortable; the countertop is a disgrace and an invitation to the health dept., but the crab louie totally sings -- no comparison! What is that amazing bread -- I shoulda asked 'cuz the guys are the friendliest, the best! Wondered aloud what the difference was between cherrystones and little necks, so the shucker gave me a sample of each -- both were top notch. Only weak point was the chowder, too cream-milk filled for my taste. But the lines are out there for a reason!
BTW, See's Candies' handily next door!!
