We were all so young.

That is all,


…we stopped into this amazing little deli called Deli Board, which is owned by Cleveland native Adam Mesnick.

What makes Deli Board so special? Well, first of all, their PICKLEZ ARE THICK! “How thick,” you ask? SO THICK.

For real. THAT thick.

Now, I’ve been laying off non-seafood meat for the past six months or so, but that didn’t stop me from ordering the Ron. Why? Because it’s my dad’s name. Guess who else’s dad’s name is Ron? That’s right, Adam Mesnick, who named the sandwich after his father.

I mean… how could I not?

THE RON! Named after both of our fathers! Or at least one of them.

Finally, Adam treated us to a sample of Deli Board’s tomato polenta soup with truffle cheese. Holy. Shit. Balls. The best, Jerry! The best!

I really don't like when people use "OMG" but, for reals... OMG.

So the next time you find yourself in San Francisco stop into Deli Board and say hello to Cleveland native Adam Mesnick, and be sure to tell him that you heard of him from Milwaukee native Justin Shady by way of his Los Angeles blog.

Oh, and try the food, too. Of course.

Can’t wait to visit again,


I told you I’d get you back!

Thanks to Beth, Matt and Amadeus for helping out.
