Diner Meets Deli in San Francisco
New York chef Amanda Freitag (you might know her as a judge on Chopped or a contestant on Next Iron Chef) is headed to San Francisco this Sunday for a one night “Diner Meets Deli” pop-up at nouveau deli Wise Sons .
Freitag, who helms the kitchen at Empire Diner and Wise Sons co-owner Evan Bloom, met last summer and hit it off “talking about matzo balls and our shared love of diner food,” Bloom told the Forward.
The duo will be offering a mash up of their respective restaurant’s menus including dishes like “The Wedge,” made with heirloom tomatoes, crispy pastrami from the deli, shaved egg and Russian dressing and Freitag’s take on bagel, cream cheese and lox — burrata with smoked salmon topped with “everything” spice and toasted rye. They will also be serving corned beef chili cheese fries and a matzo ball marrow soup. (Check out the full menu here
