S.F. New York Deli at Embarcadero Center - Has Anyone Tried It?

Has anyone tried this deli? It just opened a few weeks ago and I am curious to find out what other chowhounds have experienced before I go and try it.

  1. Are you talking about Gambino's? They've been open for over a year at One Embarcadero Ctr. Is there something else newer that this Jersey gal is missing?

    1. I'm suspecting he's talking about Wichcraft at the SF Westfield Center. Sorry I haven't tried, but will try soon.

      1. There's reportedly a new kosher place in EC called SF New York Deli:

          Definitely sounds like a place that needs to be checked out by nostalgic New Yorkers! I actually passed by the place on the weekend (I think it was closed) and thought it might just be another gimmicky name.

        2. Sandwiches are $7-8. Also have hot dogs and soup (split-pea, mushroom barley, matzoh-ball).

          It's just off Justin Herman plaza, the last place in the outdoor food court between Embarcadero 4 and the Hyatt Regency. Sunday-Thursday 10:30-6:30, Friday 10:30 until two hours before sunset.

          Kosher for real, not just -style. They even have a sukkah set up in the plaza.

            That doen't mean it's gonmna' be good though. But it seems mildly promising.

                A Thai restaurant called Osha (or Osho or Asha--use of overly stylized font used on the sign made it unreadable)appears about to open at the old Faz location. I glanced through an open door and saw finished floor, tables, chairs, etc.

                  Osha was open yesterday. It's the fourth branch of a local chain of hipster-oriented places.

            1. Hello all, the deli is right in front of Justin Herman Plaza right after the salad restaurant on the walkway where the tables are. The deli has a sign outside that says SF Hot Dog, but when you go inside the menu says SF New York Deli. According to the menu, everything is kosher. I was wondering if anyone had eaten there and if it's any good?
