Best ‘Bad’ Veggie Sandwich

Finding a not-basic vegetarian sandwich is a feat. Luckily, Lil’s Bagels delivers. House-pickled radishes, housemade sauerkraut and spicy greens are sandwiched between a spicy beet-turmeric bagel and slathered with garden and chutney schmears. The Bad Judy is a collision of flavors that will leave even the most carnivorous satisfied. Make it vegan by swapping the schmear for veggie hummus and baba ghanoush. Grab it via the walk-up “windough” or recently-opened-for-takeout interior. lilsbagels.com.
