Fisherman’s Wharf Restaurants.If you have a hankering for seafood, you’ve come to the right place. Fisherman’s Wharf is the epicenter for San Francisco’s famed Dungeness crab, a shellfish delicacy that’s served whole, cracked, or in San Francisco specialty dishes such as Cioppino at all of Fisherman’s Wharf top restaurants. Cioppino is a hearty, zesty seafood stew that originated with San Francisco’s Italian fisherman in the early 1900s. The dish is usually made from the day’s catch, augmented by herbs, vegetables, and a tomato-based soup. Be sure to sample some and experience a century-old Fisherman’s Wharf tradition.
