Chef Einat Admony and her husband, Stefan Nafziger, bring their wildly popular falafel to Nolita with this 17-seat outpost. The chickpea fritters come in three flavors: green (parsley and cilantro), red (roasted red peppers) and spicy harissa. New plates include a seasonally changing salad (such as chopped kale mixed with crispy shallots, pears and roasted almonds), plus an exotic slushy made with prickly pear and lemon. Pick up one of the house-made products, like spicy harissa and preserved lemons, which line the shelves of this location.

What could be wrong with a reasonably priced, fresh, clean Middle Eastern takeout spot with huge portions and a smart chef? Nothing. That's why I gave it 5 stars.

The falafel here is unbeatable. I don't care what anyone says about Mamoun's. The only advantage Mamoun has is its hours. 

I always order the mixed falafel platter because I can never pick just one flavor falafel or side, though the sandwiches are excellent too. My only complaint is that there isn't one in Midtown. 

My next trip I will be trying the date-lime-banana smoothie.

Taim has a delicious menu and is absolutely a favorite lunch spot in Nolita! The line is always out the door during lunchtime but they're somehow really quick with the orders. The falafel sandwich is my favorite with the green (not spicy) and I always add the amba (it's a peach salsa) and I can't live without it. Straight up quality falafel served in a chic way. Their drink menu is bomb dot com too - recommend the ginger mint lemonade! Also love this place because it's a filling and healthy lunch for under $10.
