It’s as if Foreign Cinema’s Laszlo Bar had read my mind (or maybe our Eating Now column?): it’s answering my lunch option prayers and opening a deli.

On June 1, Laszlo Bar will launch its Machine Deli weekday lunch, previewing signature sandwiches from the team’s upcoming coffee and deli shop at 1020 Market St.

There will be five signature sandwiches ($8 to $12) with house-smoked, handcrafted, natural meats, including ham, turkey, pork loin, pastrami and sirloin roast beef. The choices are “Americano Italiano,” with house-smoked roast beef, rabe with garlic and chile flakes, and balsamic cippolini; “The Roaster” a classic smoked turkey club with brown sugar bacon and avocado; “Drill Press,” a tri-inspired house-cured and smoked pastrami melt; “The Alternator,” a Chinese smoked chicken salad with citrus and peanut sauce; and “The Lathe,” with caponata, olivada, orange-garlic bath, goat cheese and wild arugula. Sides ($3 to $4) include Moroccan baby carrots, mushrooms a la grecque, raw slaw and French-style potato-shallot salad.

Machine Deli lunch is offered Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., 2526 Mission St. (at 22nd).
