I guess I'm a chowhound even when it's the furthest thing from my mind. We had just finished doing 2 weeks food shopping at the produce store on Divis. in the Haight that I liked so much (K& J?) - about 10 bags for $70. (Organic oranges - 3# for $1.99, heirloom tomats $1.99#, onions .29#) and were rushing to Kaiser ICU where my mother in law is the star patient - when, on Broderick south of Fell, I spy rushing by the side window...no, what? The distinctive red and yellow Delessio sign.
When we got home, with a very negative review of the Kaiser cafeteria fresh in my mind, I had to call Delessio on Market and ask some questions. Here's the deal: November first Delessio is opening Delessio Market on the east side of Broderick, south of Fell.
No table service, but all the items sold at the Market Street location will be available, plus an extensive expansion of cheeses and deli items for take-out.
My only remaining question: why the odd no-man's-land location? Is there any foot traffic on that block whatsoever? I don't think so...
