Battle of the holdouts

Lost City asks:

So which is better, Zum or Von W? Hard to say. Zum's food is probably a notch above, but Von W. has homemade bratwurst in its favor. Zum's atmosphere is cozy, but also a bit theme-parky. Von W. has no pretensions, and puts you immediately at ease. Simply put, Zum feels like a fun restaurant, but Von W. feels like a home that also serves strangers food. I like them both, but Von W. has my heart.

They also have a cool wooden phone booth.

Sammets was the best of all - even over Gephardts which was popular. WOW - thanks for bringing up some good memories.

Ah, the one German neighborhood of Glendale.

Used to be clean, with unique shops and places like these restaurants. Neghibors looked out for each other.

Now its 99c stores, bodegas, and Eastern European trash.

Wonderful.

The best German food experience in the area is to be had at the Gottscheer Hall taproom, in my opinion. Great cheese spaetzel.
