European-style deli meets Japanese cuisine in Delica rf1 at the San Francisco Ferry Building. Occupying a cavernous space fitted with a single long table against the window and an intimate Nakashima-style wooden sushi bar, Delica rf1 bustles at lunch time and slows down for the evening sushi happy hour, when servers bring out additional tables. At lunch, diners create their own a la carte bento box from a selection of salads (including creative Asian-fusion selections such as wasabi garlic potato salad), Japanese-style curries, and panko-crusted seafood. Evening options include wild-harvest salmon and creative sushi rolls.
