Make a Wise Decision

After reading an article, last fall, on Thrillist, featuring Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen, this place has been on my list of sandwich joints to try. Well this past weekend we finally made our way over to 3150 24th Street – the heart of culture in the the Mission District to indulge in some Jewish “soul food.” Offering an expansive menu of food items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, here you’ll find your matzoh ball soup, potato pancakes (latkes), pastrami or corned beef reubens, decadent club sandwiches and braised brisket.


While waiting for my turkey and pastrami “facon” (fake bacon) club, I started out with the most flavorful chocolate babka I’ve ever eaten. It was HUGE and could easily be shared between two people.

Already wowed after my first glimpse of Wise Sons’ lip smacking goodness, the club sandwich and fries shortly arrived. Being a Jewish deli, you won’t find pork served here, so in lieu of bacon, the club is comprised of: smoked turkey, pastrami fried like bacon, avocado, tomato, lettuce, and horseradish on challah toast. Normally I prefer a warm pressed sandwich, but this one was delish and the pastrami facon was out of this world!




Aside from the delightful meal, the atmosphere was casual and low key. We sat outside, at the family-style picnic tables, of course so that GG could join, and the other patrons seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as we were. I look forward to serving Wise Sons’ latkes at my Hanukkah party next month.
