Bread & Olive

Midtown West
Diners descend in hordes for Bread & Olive’s falafel and citrus-marinated shawarma, which are rolled with tomatoes, pickles and tahini sauce into pita bread that’s baked in the restaurant’s brick oven. Dinner, like lunch, is a modest affair. Sides such as loubieh bi zayt (string beans sautéed with tomato and onion) come in foil trays. Although primarily a take-out spot, the small rear dining room is inviting enough for a sit-down: The walls are painted in raucous Day-Glo, the staff is enthusiastic, and the sound system thumps Arabic beats.
