Meat, the handsomest of the nine food groups, gets its good looks from spice rubs, tenderizers, and long soaks in anti-aging marinades. Ogle seductive slabs with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth meats and deli fare of at Guerra's
Founded in 1954 and owned by second-generation San Francisco natives, the steaksmiths at Guerra's chop chicken, fillet fish, and pull pork to order. Fill meat lockers once decorated with posters of hunky celebrity steers with beef, fish, or poultry, from skirt steak ($10.99/lb.) and 8-ounce ahi tuna steaks ($8/steak) to proteins such as Mary's Organic Chicken ($3.99/lb.). Or fill bread bookends with deli meats, then complement sandwiches with extensive grocery offerings to round out a pleasant outdoor picnic or an antibiotic- and nitrite-free food fight.
