Neighbavore: Outer Sunset and West Portal

Carolyn Alburger | June 20, 2013 | Story Restaurants

THE EXPERT: John Duggan, third-generation owner of Original Joe’s.

Submarine Center
”A legendary sandwich maker, but don’t expect a smile. Get the hot pastrami with avocado and jalapeƱo.”
820 Ulloa St. (near Claremont Blvd.), 415-564-1455

Zanze’s Cheesecake
“Sam Zanze has perfected his craft: his cakes are light, fluffy, and flavorful. The sour cherry, with a cup of Java Beach coffee, is a perfect pick me up. “
2405 Ocean Ave. (near San Fernando Way), 415-334-2264

Gold Mirror Restaurant
“The Di Grande brothers cook pure Italian comfort food. Wash down hearts of palm salad and veal saltimbocca with straight booze. For dessert: scoops of vanilla and chocolate—you know how the Sunset rolls.”
800 Taraval St. (at 18th Ave.), 415-564-0401
