The Inside Scoop caught wind of a rumor that ~ORIGINAL JOE’S~ might be reopening in the Joey & Eddie’s space (previously Moose’s) on Washington Square. I got a “no comment” from John Duggan, whose family opened the restaurant in 1937 (it’s remained tragically closed since a nasty fire in 2007). But sources close to the North Beach scene confirm the rumor is a likely possibility, so we’ll just have to sit tight and see what kind of paperwork is signed, hopefully soon. 1652 Stockton St. at Union.
