I went to scout the new California Delicatessen, in the Jewish Community Center. I tried the chopped liver sandwich, the corned tongue sandwich and the Israeli avocado salad. The corned tongue sandwich was a disaster. I was asked for what kind of bread, and I said rye, and indeed, that's all I got: rye bread and corned tongue. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be, I did not grow up with the stuff, but brother, could you spare a leaf of lettuce or a slice of tomato? For almost $10, it was the most depressing sandwich ever. Ok, there was a pickle but I ate it first. There was a horseradish mustard in a little container, but I did not see it. The chopped liver sandwich too was only bread and chopped liver, but the chopped liver is mixed with mayo, so it is not as bare. As for the avocado salad: it was decent, with lots of walnut and celeri and red leaf lettuce. Not enough avocado to my taste (or at least to command the $8.50 price), but it's SF, so it's par for the course. I mention the place here as it won't make it to my SFist post, I'm pretty sure I won't be back.
