Around Town: Downtown San Jose loses another restaurant – Togo’s

I’ve been spending my days this month at San Jose State University, where I’m helping with the Mosaic Journalism program, a three-week workshop that pairs professionals with budding high school journalists. It’s usually a learning experience for me, but I was surprised that one of the things I learned being around campus is that the Togo’s on Paseo de San Antonio had closed recently.

With the previous loss of the Togo’s at San Pedro Square, that means the sandwich shop no longer has a presence in downtown San Jose — where it had its origins back in 1971 near SJSU on William Street.

More troubling is that the Paseo de San Antonio shop included an old sign, menus and other artifacts from that original location after it had closed.

Hopefully, all that historic material is in a safe place somewhere.
