    1. You should do a search on this board. You will find out Porto's is a bakery, and there's not much that's all that chow worthy in that area. If you branch out a bit east, west or south, many more options open up for you.

        Portos has great sandwiches and salads aside form the terrific bakery goods. It is absolutely worth visiting and a great choice, especially if you are in the area.

            Also, I really liked Novo Cafe for casual Italiano.

            1. re: kevin

              pizza/pasta/salads/sandwiches are good, risotto was f'n terrible.

                1. re: ns1

                  is the pizza there sorta new york/italian american/takeout stylee, or some sort of neopolitan variant?

                  never will understand kevin's affection for bea beas, although bistro provence is solid.

                  1. re: linus

                    neopolitan variant. above pitfire/pizzarev, below 800'


          2. If you want to forget the chow worthiness factor, and instead have a bite of nostalgia, there is a Bob's Big Boy, complete with carhops, etc.
            On Riverside Drive about 4 or so blocks from WB.

              1. Novo café is easiest if you're at WB, it's a block up behind the WB green glass building.

                My choice would be Malbec for the salmon
