Having opened during last year’s part of the pandemic, the West Portal addition to the Original Joe’s restaurant family sold pantry items straight out of the gate. The small-ish interior is half-marketplace and half-takeout (with a little seating), serving house-made ravioli in classic meat sauce, pizzas, roast chickens, sandwiches, and Straus organic soft serve ice cream. The marketplace is full of both fresh and frozen house-made pastas, sauces, take-and-bake lasagnas, pizza dough, as well as curated goods such as Boudin Bakery bread, Native Baking Company cookies, and Italian olive oils and wines. Note that there are plenty of newly stocked panettone for the holiday season, including limited-edition Dolce & Gabbana ones (who knew they made food?).
How to order: Walk in.
