Tarantino’s—An Irish Clan Serving Great Seafood Italian Style— Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day
Tarantino’s Restaurant celebrates their Irish heritage on St. Patrick’s Day. Unlike most of the Italian-named restaurants on Fisherman’s Wharf, two Irish veterans started an "Italian" restaurant.
San Francisco, CA - March 2012 -- Established in 1946 by two young men (Dan Sweeney, Jr. and Gene McActeer) fresh out of the Navy, Tarantino’s, sitting on a pier at Fisherman’s Wharf, became uniquely known for its warm environment as well as its tasty Italian seafood dishes.
Back from WWII eager to start a venture, two San Francisco native sons planned to open a restaurant in their hometown. Recognizing the Italian traditions of North Beach, these lads of Irish descent purchased not only the building but rights to use the Tarantino name. In 1946, Tarantino’s Restaurant opened on Fisherman’s Wharf. A warm environment and great seafood continue to this day. Tarantino’s freshness continues to supersede expectations. Over 115,000 happy customers were served last year alone.
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day: To honor their heritage, Tarantino’s Restaurant announces they will offer the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day in addition to the ever- popular seafood dishes.
Over the years, Tarantino’s staff would proudly display their rich heritage by wearing shamrocks while serving quality Italian seafood dishes. Although they no longer wear shamrocks daily, St. Patrick’s Day will see they staff decked out with green ties. A map of old Ireland still welcomes visitors at the entrance as it did in 1946.
The traditional menu of fresh seafood, particularly Pacific Salmon (coming in-season soon), halibut, and Dungeness crab, remain popular Over the years, some of the heavy pasta dishes have yielded to more delicate fare. Most entree items remain affordable and range from $17 - $25. Tarantino’s continues to draw both locals as well as tourists visiting San Francisco.
Whether for St. Patrick’s Day or just a visit to the Wharf, Tarantino’s remains a wonderful spot for a sit-down meal or to just grab a bowl of clam chowder or crab salad from the street-level counter.
With the wild Pacific King Salmon coming soon and fresh local Halibut and crab delivered daily, Tarantino’s continues to draw a combination of regulars from throughout California and tourists visiting Fisherman’s Wharf.
Tarantino’s is located at 206 Jefferson Street in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf and is open from 11 AM to 10:00 PM daily. Check them out on Facebook or Foursquare or at www.TarantinosRestaurant.com.
