Flock to Fifi's for Fresh Fish

This North Beach spot sells top-grade seafood.

Wine Spectator will not be awarding any medals of excellence to Fifi's abbreviated bill of bottles, which probably doesn't come as a shock. What is unusual, at least for a seafood restaurant, is that the number of red wines offered is almost double that of whites (13 to 8 by the bottle, 9 to 5 by the glass). Whites run $22 to $80 (Clos Pegase Chardonnay), reds $22 to $170 (2005 Far Niente Cabernet); glasses of either tint range from $6.50 to $12. Beers are Kirin, Sapporo, Corona, and Heineken ($4 to $5). No water is sold — the in-house filtered H2O is poured for free. A triangular wedge of densely satisfying flan is served on the house as well.

That Fifi's isn't fashionable doesn't mean throngs of locals don't descend here (put Yogi-style: Nobody knows about this crowded place). During peak dining hours and weekends, service tends to suffer, and the lapse between courses can be insufferable. The hospitable vibe of the place, however, never wavers. It's that welcoming spirit, a relaxed environment, and fresh fish that make Fifi's worth catching.
