My Life as a San Francisco Realtor: West Portal Before and After - Squat & Gobble

West Portal Before and After - Squat & Gobble

It was a dark day in San Francisco in October 2012 when a four alarm fire at the corner of West Portal Avenue and Ulloa Street took out some very popular businesses - Squat & Gobble Restaurant, the wine bar and shop Vin Debut and a large dental practice. By early 2013 the debris had been cleared away and we were left with an empty corner!

As a former Architect and now as a Realtor I understand how losses like this can affect a neighborhood shopping area like West Portal. The West Portal Avenue Association and the Greater West Portal Neighborhood Association threw their full support behind the rebuild. 

And here we Are! Squat & Gobble is back, and it won't be long before Vin Debut and the dental practice will be back in business.

Excellent to see the support by the Greater West Portal Neighborhood Association.
