Growing up in San Francisco, my father used to work construction downtown and where he would take us for lunch is Swan's. I recently moved from the City, but about a month ago I had to come back for personal reasons, and where did I wind up?? Swan's! It brought back so many memories and the food was still the same. Nice, fresh seafood to die for. And the horseradish sauce?? Me and my Mom brought back two bottles. But we are running out, so it's time to make that trip again! <br /> Stay true Swan's, please don't change.
