Cans Deli, a sister concept of TallBoys, has officially opened. The front of the 6,000-square-foot space serves as a deli, while the back serves as music-focused bar.
The interior features teal and apricot accents for an aesthetic evocative of a rollerskating rink. Customers order at the counter, then sit at one of the booths, window tables, or the communal high-top table.
Prices are affordable, ranging from $6 for Smoked & Fried Chicken Wings to $10 for the Pastrami Sandwich.
Our favorite was the House-Smoked Pork Belly Sandwich, which tasted like an evolved BLT. The pork belly was sliced thick enough for substantial meatiness, complemented by the clever addition of tangy and subtly sweet pickled tomatillos. The feta spread complemented the richness and acidity of the aforementioned ingredients.
Cans is currently running on limited operating hours of 5 – 10 p.m. for food and 5 p.m. – 2 a.m. for the bar. Starting Monday, food will be available from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
The menu is also limited at the moment — Cans will soon begin work on their own bread program, kimchi, and a handful of Mediterranean items such as falafel and hummus.
