Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Owner Mouhamad Shami found the city’s falafel too oily, so he introduced his own at this cafeteria-style lunch spot, which also serves fine shawarma, kebabs, baba ghanoush and other Middle Eastern standards. The crunchy chickpea fritters are worth a detour: The tasty patties are lighter than most and subtly spiced with cumin and coriander. The results are good enough to grace “Best Falafel” lists, and have amassed a large following among Financial District workers. It’s healthier than most takeout, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t cheap (a falafel sandwich goes for $5, a platter $9) or fast.
