Popi’s Oysterette is here to remind you that you live in a city surrounded by water. It’s a castle of knockout seafood right in the middle of the Marina. The menu covers nearly everything that swims. You’ll throw back grilled and raw oysters topped with zingy yuzu tobiko, dive into creamy Dungeness crab sandwiches, and scoop cured trout dip with crisp saltines. One sleeper hit is the rich clam chowder that’s leveled up with gigantic chunks of bacon. The space gives off a mildly nautical vibe with ropes overhead, blue tiles, and tons of natural light from the Chestnut Street-facing windows. It’s a very pleasant spot to spend an afternoon alongside a cold glass of wine and half a dozen bivalves.
