When did you first come here?
Not long ago, to get a sandwich and it was a great sandwich [beet flatbread with sunflower seed puree]. I’m a connoisseur of good vegetarian sandwiches.
What’s the landscape of those in the city?
I’m sure there are many I don’t know about because I tend to cook my own food, but my long-running favorite is the Californian from Martin’s without the turkey, and Stein’s has a pressed one called the Hippie that’s unbelievable.
What’s good about the Sneaky Pickle?
I love this place because you can eat a lot and come away feeling bouncy and energetic. That’s the kind of food I like. When I first became vegetarian I just ate bagels all the time, and I was always exhausted. It took me a long time to figure that out. I would have bet literally a million dollars when I was 17 that a plate of food like these greens would never be something I just had to have—more than a bag of Doritos.
