The Franciscan, San Francisco 1950s
Built in 1957 and recently remodeled, the Franciscan restaurant has been a long-standing part of San Francisco seafood dining and Fisherman's Wharf's landscape.
It has served – along with other fresh seafood – and astonishing three million fresh Dungeness Crabs since opening.
Marilyn Monroe and Joe Di Maggio and former Presidenr Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy are among the celebrity guests who have patronized this favorite dining spot on the City’s Wharf.
Owners Andrea Froncillo, Jerry Del Bozzo and Dante Serafini took over the business in 2005 and have breathed new life into the restaurant.
This charming and beautifully illustrated menu cover is from the early 1950s, we believe.
Each order includes a print of the interior menu.
All printed in USA.
