Dot's Delicatessen

If you like meat and you like options, tiny Dot's Delicatessen in upper Fremont is the spot for you. You want your meat in a sandwich? There's the Reuben with housemade pastrami and tangy sauerkraut. Prefer it with sides? Crispy frites, herbed potato salad and coleslaw, and collard greens sautéed with bacon are all winners. Hankering for something fancy and spreadable? Chicken-liver mousse and a variety of delicate patés are waiting for you in the butcher's case, as are fresh local eggs, chickens, and sometimes whole rabbits. Digging a dog? Dot's makes the best sausages in the city—fat links of spicy Italian, bratwurst, andouille, and lamb merguez that you can order for lunch at the counter or take home and cook yourself. ERIN K.
