"Bernstein's Fish Grotto was a popular restaurant in San Francisco that operated from 1912 - 1981. Opened by Maurice Bernstein (1886-1932) in 1912, Bernstein's Fish Grotto was known for its unique entrance, a ship's bow jutting into the sidewalk. It was intended to be a reproduction of Christopher Columbus' ship Niña. Inside the restaurant, the marine theme continued. Bernstein's had seven dining rooms styled to look like ship's cabins: the Fisherman's Cave, the Pilot Room, the Sun Deck, the Main Salon, the Cabin Nooks, the Upper Deck, and the Porthole Counter. The restaurant was also known for its Coo-Coo Clams from Coo-Coo Cove. Located at 123 Powell Street, near the end of the cable car line, the Grotto was a popular tourist attraction for many years."
