Every once in awhile, SFist likes to get out of their little burrtito ghetto and enjoy the finer things of life. Like the new oyster bar at Farallon. Put into the restaurant in November, they finally have the thing up and running. So it was yummy seafood, more oysters than we could know what to do with, and the spending of lots and lots of money. And more money on top of that. Did we say it was expensive?

How's this for expensive: the Maine lobster roll brioche was $18. It was pretty good, though. As was the rest of the meal-- pricey but good. We also learned way more about the different types of oysters than we ever thought we would.
