Any Jewish Delis in the Bay Area? At All?!

Hey Serious Eaters!

I recently moved to the Bay Area (Oakland pride!) and among all the excellent food choices, I have yet to come across or even hear tell of an honest-to-goodness DELI. I'm talkin corned beef and/or pastrami made in-house, good pickles, homemade chicken soup and/or matzah ball soup, etc. I honestly feel like this is a pipe dream and you're all laughing at how crazy I am to even imagine this here! There IS a jewish bakery near my house in Grand Lake, but I'm sorry to say their bagels are terrible. Being a good jewish girl from Philadelphia, I'm aching for this! Let me know of any hidden treasures and I'll keep my fingers crossed....
