To the delight of 500 Club regulars (who have always had to walk an absurd amount of blocks all the way down to Mission Street to get a decent burrito for their drink-cushion), an East Coast-style deli called Clare’s has made its future presence known on 17th and Guerrero streets. According to Mission Mission, “’East coast style fun’ better involve slamming back cases of Harpoon UFO and watching Irish people have fist fights.” But that’s not what the opening of this deli says to us. We’re thinking pastrami. For real. Miller’s East Coast Deli has got to stop being the only game in town. David Sax pointed out to us a couple weeks ago that somebody is bound to give deli meat the whole 4505 Meats treatment. Let’s hope this is it.
