Omnivore - Back to General Muir for lunch

New deli is packing them in


I returned to the General Muir for lunch last week and ordered - very unlike me - a hot dog (above). The new deli's is made with lamb sausage, eggplant spread, harrisa slaw, and a za'atar hot dog bun. It was so good I could have eaten two but didn't want to cough up another $9.

My friend Lee ordered the "Lower Eastside," a plate with salt-cured lox, smoked nova, and smoked trout, while Frank ordered the "Avenue A," an open-faced bagel with nova, a schmear, avocado, grapefruit, cucumber, onion, and dill.

All praise-worthy and more traditional than the riff-licious dinner menu.
