When my cousin was in town, we decided to eat at the Hog Island Oyster Co. She is a huge fan oysters, and doesn't get fresh ones where she lives. The line was long, but it moved quickly.
The menu was simple.
There are several different offerings of oysters and oyster dishes. We decided on Oysters Casino (butter, Spanish paprika, bacon, shallots, and thyme) and Harisa (piquillo peppers, calabrian chili, cumin, coriander and garlic).
We also got a raw oyster mix from the bar. They seriously melted in our mouths.
Husband is not a big raw oyster fan. There was also a grilled cheese sandwich on the menu which was the most decadent I have ever tasted. It was made with Mezzo secco, Gruyere, and formage blanc. It was so rich, the three of us ended up sharing it.
This place is absolutely incredible. It does get busy, and they do not accept reservations. If you are an oyster fan (or a grilled cheese fan for that matter) and are in San Francisco, you must check this place out. You will not be disappointed.

P.S. They also have a nearby farm in Tomales Bay where you can eat oysters fresh from the water. I really hope to visit one day.
