What Is Original Joe’s?
Original Joe’s is an Italian-American restaurant in San Francisco, considered by many to be the best Italian restaurant in the Bay Area,
Beginning in 1937 in the Tenderloin district, It was opened by a Croatian immigrant, Tony Rodin. Today, it is considered an institution, with leather booths, smooth cocktails and a renowned Italian-American menu. Known as much for its comfortable familiarity as for its abundant portions, the menu offers hamburgers, steaks, seafood and pastas, which now represent a Northern-California style of food. It’s been featured in Bon Appetit, as well as the San Francisco Chronicle, the magazine Conde Nast Traveler, restaurant guide Eater, ratings site Zagat, and many others .
And now it’s coming to Walnut Creek
When it opens in 2024, the 8,000-square-foot restaurant — formerly Stanford’s, across from Macy’s — will mark the third location for third-generation brother-and-sister owners John and Elena Duggan. It will offer a menu similar to its North Beach and Daly City restaurants. Nostalgic and approachable dishes
The old Stanford’s space will get a much needed update, including new woodwork, a bar area, an exhibition kitchen and seating for about 200. Outdoor dining, featuring both a fireplace and misters will also be new.
