THE MISSION - Wise Sons Deli opened unexpectedly this morning at 9 a.m. and will stay "softly open" through the long weekend. Here's the opening menu with a solid selection of Jewish-style sandwiches, weekday breakfast, and weekend brunch options like corned beef hash and the L.E.O. bialy with lox and caramelized onions. Remember, every last thing is made in house here, and Inside Scoop has the rundown on the challah, bialys, bagels and when they're available. Take note that hours will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on President's Day. [EaterWire, ISSF]
