This warm and uncharacteristically cozy deli puts out the familiar carb-filled suspects—Italian sandwiches, mayonnaise-happy salads, and meats and cheeses galore—but it also has a few un-deli-like tricks up its sleeve (kale salad?). Stick to well-executed basics, such as the gigantic muffuletta buried in juicy olives, and hop in line early because the good stuff sells out fast.

Order (serves 2): Potato salad, $3.96 for a half pound; Sicilian muffuletta, $9.99
