I was born in Wilmington, NC and I have grown up loving seafood. My dad fed me shrimp and oysters whenever we visited our coastal relatives and those foods always brings back warm memories for me. Sometimes my dad comes to visit me in SF and we have a great time eating our way around the bay. We had this Cioppino at Phil’s Fish Market in Moss Beach, CA when he visited me from Nashville in spring 2011. It is a wonderful place full of fresh caught, wild, local fish. They have a huge outdoor patio where you can dine with the locals and smell the sea air. You can also buy some fresh seafood to take home. If you are driving down the coast I highly recommend stopping at this place. You can watch Bobby Flay taking on Phil in a Cioppino throwdown here.
