Did the tell you at the interview if you were approved or not? Regardless, it can't hurt to call. They most they can say is sorry .. you have to wait the full 90 days. I'd check the timelines of other citizenship filers in San Francisco and see what the turn around time was like for them.

^^^ this.. however i'm assuming when you said " waiting for you letter", you did pass the interview.. first, congratulations.. second, just wait.. it'll come.. you're already there.. check my timeline below to give you an idea on how long or short it would take.. i never called while waiting because it doesn't ease the anticipation and wait..
