|Top Cheftesant Ryan Scott unleashes dual delis in SF.|
Each is slightly different - the original, more kid-friendly West Portal shop features a build-it-yourself salad bar option (think Whole Foods, only better), whereas the newly opened Potrero Hill branch caters to the more to grab-and-go Design District worker bee with pre-boxed salads, sandwiches and awesome section entirely dedicated to fried items (think fries with black garlic Ranch, bacon-wrapped pickles and chicharonnes). The main focus for both, however, is fanciful market-fresh (hence the name) sandwiches built on housemade breads - sourdough, whole wheat, brioche and its signature salted rye (hence the second half of the name).
In addition, both bake up an array of whimsical, diet-defying morning pastries and afternoon treats such as sticky buns and a 'Twinkie' of the week, washed down by teas, coffee and lemonades.
Check the main website for specific menus and hours at both locations.
