Tessa Delicatessen Top 100

Vince Howard’s spartan deli has only been open a year, but already the neighborhood has embraced his breakfast and lunch sandwiches as if they’ve been mainstays for much longer. And Howard has returned the favor by providing a variety of experiences throughout the year, from burger nights to South Indian feasts (courtesy of his sous chef) to occasional barbecues. Like a multi-layered Reuben on flavorful rye, the whole is greater than any single ingredient at Tessa.
