A New Lunch Place to Geek Out At

A tablehopper reader tipped me off to a new sandwich place called ~LUNCH GEEK~, now open in the former Broaster Cafe (how many times did I ride my bike past that place and wonder who ate there). The new concept sounds much more up my alley: a range of sandwiches with names like I Flunked Gym Class (free-range chicken breast, Swiss cheese, mayo, Geek sauce, spicy jalapeño sauce, mixed greens, tomato) and many more, and on Acme bread to boot (Grub Street reprinted the entire menu here). The husband and wife team of Phillip and Lean Ma are also making drip coffee to order from Barefoot. According to a tip on Yelp, Asian-inspired sandwiches and tacos are also in the works. For example, today’s special was a Southeast pulled pork sandwich. Hours for now are Mon-Fri 7am-5pm, and Sat 8am-6pm. 1400 Market St. at Polk, 415-626-8888.
