Fixed. That notion is likely from the 2006 pre-Christmas road trip thread in which I recommended Original Joe's as offering a good hamburger. The recommendation was seconded. But Tokyo Slim lacerated his mouth with the French bread crust of the hamburger at Joe's and lamented about the absence of salt and pepper at Tommy's Joynt. Eating anything other than a hamburger at the counter of Original Joe's is a waste of time and money.
You gents never did report on the girls of Glide Memorial.

Still, that does sound great. I do miss Tosca. Since my parents moved, I never go there any more.
I'm still bitter about the move.
Old San Francisco? Since steak is still the theme of the thread, we used to eat our steak at Grisson's on Van Ness Avenue. When the first Trader Vic's was in Cosmo Alley, Kobe beef was on the menu.
