Homegrown is the local Seattle sandwich chain Gwyneth Paltrow wishes she came up with. Everything is organic and sustainable, water is sold by the carton, and they also have really good pickles. Get the pastrami or the ham and beecher’s cheese sandwich with sage aioli and caramelized onion, or the chicken pecan cherry salad if you’re trying to attempt health. Group catering is also great here if you’re doing takeout lunch for the whole office. Just make sure they remember the pickles.
