“The deli across the street, on the corner of Varick and King Streets, Dizzy Izzy’s. I get the Times Square sandwich – the mix of turkey, melted cheese and bacon is fantastic. I have it at least once a week to make sure I have a heart attack,” he joked.

“The food vendor, on the corner of Varick and Charlton Streets. The grilled chicken pita sandwich is my favorite. It’s fresh, incredibly spicy, and he’s a nice guy so I like giving him business. He sells it for $5, which is a very reasonable price.”

“I like the falafels the guy sells at the stand on the southeast corner of King and Varick streets. He puts eggplant in it – whatever mix he has is particularly tasty.”
