Editorial Review of Tadich Grill: The Story of San Francisco’s Oldest Restaurant, With Recipes

The Tadich Grill A History of San Francisco’s Oldest Restaurant, with Recipes by John Briscoe In 1849, an unassuming coffee stand was founded on the San Francisco waterfront. Enduring earthquakes, fires, and changes of name, location, and ownership, that establishment still stands, now known as the Tadich Grill, California’s oldest restaurant. The constants throughout the Tadich’s evolution have been hearty seafood and other local specialties, and the stewardship of Croatian American families. John Tadich immigrated to San Francisco in 1872 and started working at the then-called New World Coffee Saloon soon after, becoming sole owner in 1887. He sold the restaurant in 1928 to the Buich family, which has carried on the Tadich tradition ever since. A destination restaurant and a local treasure, the Tadich Grill continues to evoke an old-world feel. THE TADICH GRILL captures the history, ambiance, and flavors of this San Francisco institution, presenting a warm portrait of a true culinary success story.

Review Summary: Terrific Tadich Grill
Review: If you have ever been to this old restaurant near the Financial District of San Francisco, you will like and appreciate this book. The SAS (steak & seafood) here is simply seasoned but very good to eat. The book’s old pictures are fascinating. Try the recipes at home and impress your dinner guests. If you have some cooking skills, you will have few problems following the recipes. As Tony Bennett sang, " I left my heart in San Francisco.. or was it the Tadich Grill?"
