Bar Jules Preserved Tuna Sandwich

Tony Tuna Salad at Bar Jules

Tired of the same ol' lunch? Between the Bread offers some fodder for brown-bag inspiration with her review of one San Francisco restaurant's preserved tuna and piquillo sandwich.

On several leisurely weekend afternoons, I've found myself at Bar Jules in Hayes Valley for lunch, and I'm never disappointed. I love the handful-and-a-half of simple brunch and lunch items; I love how the chalkboard menu changes daily but not too drastically; and I adore the cheery, comforting blue and mustard walls. I even love the bathroom decor.

The restaurant's unique tuna sandwich, revisited, when you keep reading.

This weekend, I revisited Jules's preserved tuna sandwich, which I first enjoyed a version of several years ago, and it was better than my memory. The fluffy, oil-preserved tuna, flecked with herbs, is served simply on slabs of grilled country bread accented with piquillo peppers.

I love tuna, but I wish tuna salad sandwiches like this were as ubiquitous as the standard mayo-laden versions. So Hayes Valley of me, I know.
