John's Grill
63 Ellis Street

Notes of Distinction
Writer Dashiell Hammett's favorite restaurant. The upper floor has a room dedicated to his classic Maltese Falcon. Sam Spade stops at John's for chops. The food is old school, not the best in town, but hang at the bar and you may get a chance to chat with a flatfoot or Don Herron, who runs the Dashiell Hammett tour.
