Sandwich mavens Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman of ~WISE SONS DELI~ have opened a brand-new sandwich counter inside the Contemporary Jewish Museum in SoMa. The space, which opened on Friday July 26th, offers their signature sandwich meats, including hot pastrami and roasted brisket, available as classic (just meat and bread), Reuben, or #19 (coleslaw, Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing). The menu is rounded out with salads and matzo ball soup; take a look at the full menu here. All ordering is done at the counter, then you take your seat, and you’ll have to go through the museum’s security line to get in (admission not required). You can also order at the window, and eat outside on the patio. Hours are Fri-Tue 11am-4pm, Thu 1pm-4pm (closed Wed), and the takeout window is open Mon-Fri 8am-4pm. 736 Mission St. at 3rd St., 415-655-7887.
They are sharing the space with De La Paz Coffee, making this the first café to open since Four Barrel took over that brand (you’ll start seeing the new De La Paz blends and spiffy packaging around town, like at Stable). They’re pulling espresso for now, and will be adding pour-over specials; look for some upcoming custom blends (currently being discussed: a Bubbie’s Blend). Open daily 11am-4pm (hours will extend soon). 415-525-4344.
