Owners of San Francisco’s Original Joe’s, Westlake Joe’s open a third restaurant

The San Francisco siblings who revived their family’s Original Joe’s tradition have now rescued another piece of their past.
Elena and John Duggan, owners of the OJ’s in North Beach and Daly City, have taken over the former Paradise Pizza in West Portal, their childhood neighborhood, and reopened it as Little Original Joe’s, a takeout eatery and retail market.
And they’re now making pizza — a first for Joe’s — using the Paradise dough recipe from original owner Sal Alioto.
But Sal probably never put smoked gouda or truffle oil on a pizza. Joining a number of classics are such artisanal options as the Fun Guy (sauteed mushrooms, mozzarella, ricotta cream, truffle oil); the PB&A (prosciutto di Parma, burrata, arugula); and the Spicy Mike (soppressata, Calabrian chile peppers, asiago and oregano).
Red-sauce traditionalists will find Joe’s House-Made Ravioli, Baked Lasagna and Eggplant and Chicken Parmigiana available to go. New offerings include Spicy Rigatoni Vodka Pasta,       Polenta Parmigiana and Mary’s Free Range Rotisserie Chicken with house sauces (salsa verde, chile crunch, barbecue and honey dijon).
The market is stocked with Joe’s grab-and-go entrees, soups, salad dressings and desserts; cheeses and cured meats; condiments and sweets; and fresh bread from Boudin and Acme. In another nod to Paradise, the market/eatery offers Menabrea — the Italian beer sold by the pizzeria.
Elena Duggan described the West Portal expansion as another way to honor their roots.
The Duggans are the grandchildren of Tony Rodin, who opened the first Original Joe’s on San Francisco’s Taylor Street in 1937. An early partner of Rodin’s, Bruno Scatena, opened Joe’s of Westlake, and the Scatena family operated that Daly City location for 57 years, until 2014.
Before it closed, hundreds of Westlake fans — including then-Gov. Jerry Brown — flocked to the iconic restaurant at Lake Merced and John Daly boulevards for a final meal.
But the scaloppine and calamari made a comeback when that spot then landed in the hands of the family that had introduced the “Joe’s concept” of Italian-American dining to San Francisco. The Duggans, who had previously opened a flagship Joe’s in North Beach, renovated the restaurant, renamed it Original Joe’s of Westlake and reopened it in 2016.
