Deli-icious in Davis Square (the old Nick's location)

enhF94 | Nov 15, 200612:31 AM     10

I'm curious for opinions of the new "Deli-icious" in Davis Square, where Nick's used to be.

Nick's Roast Beef was a wonderful, cheap little spot with, well, brilliant roast beef (not to be confused with the big chain). Owned by a Greek guy named Nick and his son. Nick died around 2003ish, the son sold the place and then it was passed through a string of owners, each less worthwhile than the last.

Until a couple of months ago, when someone bought and renamed it "Deli-icious," reworking the menu significantly.

The new crew (some of whom were around during the crappy handoffs) seem interested in doing a little bit extra, such as including applesauce as a side, house-making potato salad, and bringing in special breads. They also gave away halloween candy, which was sweet. And the friendly woman at the counter started recognizing my voice on the phone by my third order, which was pretty neat.

Nonetheless, $6.75 for a turkey sandwich is a little steep for an everyday lunch... although I do like that I can have it with fun extras like sliced cukes and shredded carrots. And the bread is fresh and good each day. Particularly the 9-grain and the braided roll.

I know it's not haute, but what are people liking and disliking?
