How to Score Barbacco's Sandwiches and Salumi without Feeling Like a Sardine

Salumi for one. Two, if you're both on a diet. - CHRIS T./YELP
As I glancingly mentioned in today's review of Barbacco, Perbacco's casual sister has a takeout lunch counter. Place an order online, starting at 8 a.m., then pick it up at the counter (underneath the flat-screen TV) between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Pluses: same food, same prices, no crowds, no temptation to order a glass of wine with lunch and lose half of the afternoon. Minuses: No food deserves biodegradable knives and forks.

Meanwhile, the Perbacco Web site announces another kind of takeout service: catering platters of Staffan Terje's salumi.

The platters cost $5 a person, include condiments, and come sized for 10 ($50), 15 ($75), and 20 ($100) people. To order, call Perbacco at 955-0663; the Web site claims the cooks only need a "short time to prepare this for you," but be reasonable, people: At minimum, give them half a day so they're not slicing off their fingers in order to rush your mortadella to you. And definitely insist your platter include slices of the fennel-pollen-scented finocchiona.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
