Tim really had me going on this--one N or two? I could see it in my mind both ways! I finally found a 1953 City Directory on-line & here it is:

Herman's Delicatessen (Herman H. Voss) 4228 Geary Blvd.

Scrolling along that column in the City Directory, though, I can see why so many of us saw a double-N in our minds: the Hermann Safe Company was located on Howard at Main (they later moved to Market Street near Valencia), the Hermann Apartments on Hermann Street near the U.S. Mint on Duboce & Market, and a Hermann's Market at 1598 Bush.

I, too have a bowl of this great potato salad in the fridge right now, and it's better than ever a full day after being made.
