Adam Mesnick opened The Board on Feb. 1, a spinoff of his popular Deli Board. Mesnick, who hails from Cleveland, has become known for his massive sandwiches with influences from everywhere. The Board will feature such items as a falafel with hummus, muenster cheese, pico de gallo, sprouts, red and green peppers, and house-made sauce on a Frena pita, a Philly cheesesteak and other meaty, cheesy creations. He’ll also be importing bagels from New York — big news in these parts — but when pressed for details, he wouldn’t divulge specifically from where, only saying the deal he struck with the supplier requires confidentiality. The Board is at 1077 Mission St. in San Francisco, has seating and is open weekdays for breakfast and lunch.
