The oyster loaf—a thick chunk of crusty bread hollowed out and stuffed with fried oysters— is an important part of San Francisco’s dining history. The Oyster Loaf restaurant kept up this gastronomical tradition, while also offering a full menu of meats and seafood. This 1940s menu cover was created by the celebrated illustrator, author and art instructor Andrew Loomis, and shows a voluptuous, brunette mermaid riding a lobster side-saddle.
