rworange thinks that the best creme brulee in San Francisco is at Alioto’s in Fisherman’s Wharf. Yes, that’s right. Fisherman’s Wharf.
It’s classic crème brulee–no trendy flavors, just the richest custard and crackliest sugar crust around. It pairs beautifully with the excellent espresso. Sit at the end of the bar, stare out at the Bay, Alcatraz, and the tourist scene passing silently beneath the window, and listen to the chat as actual locals stop by the bar. And enjoy the creme brulee.
