  • The future home of a "modern deli" on Fifth and F streets.

The windows are still covered up where the Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe once revved its engines and panini presses at Fifth and F streets, but not for long. Christine Silver, owner of Humboldt Soup Company, plans to open Delish on 5th sometime in the next couple of months.

Says Silver, "It's gonna be what I'm calling a kitchen store and a modern deli," meaning a meat-centric menu of sandwiches with house-made corned beef pastrami and roast beef, plus cheeses and charcuterie in the 11-foot deli case. There'll also be a kitchen store with upscale home cooking tools and specialty food products.

The remodel is still in progress, though the range hood has been installed in the kitchen and all the permits are in order. Silver will be hiring about 10 staff for the place, too. Outdoor seating may be in the cards down the line but right now she's "just getting the doors open."
