The Expert: Melissa Reitz, chef-partner at Bar Agricole

The Picks: “Bar Tartine has a sprouted lentil falafel that’s super good, and I like that they always have a lot of vegetable dishes because usually i’m stuffing meat into my face.” 561 Valencia St. (near 16th St.), 415-487-1600

“At Rhea’s Deli & Market, they have this Korean barbecue sandwich—it’s more like roast beef, with chili paste, mayo, and mustard. it’s super-juicy and slick with condiments; they really put a lot of shit on the sandwich. 800 Valencia St. (near 19th St.), 415-282-5255

“For an afternoon snack I like La Taqueria—it’s great if you forgot to eat lunch and you’re starving. I get the chorizo, lengua, and carnitas.” 2889 Mission St. (neat 25th St.), 415-285-7117
