Dungeness crab, which is native to northern California thru to Alaska, is a beloved delicacy in San Francisco, considered by locals to be sweeter and more flavorful than other, lesser crabs.
In fact, for some San Franciscans, a Dungeness crab feast is a holiday tradition as sacred as turkey on Thanksgiving Day and glazed ham on Christmas Day in the U.S.
You can order a fresh catch served up fried, sauteed or roasted; or as crab cakes, crab cocktail, crab Louie salad or Cioppino stew.
Scoma’s is a waterfront restaurant in Fisherman’s Wharf that serves up sustainably-sourced seafood and has been a local favorite for 50 years. This is a fantastic place to savor Dungeness crab and Cioppino stew.
