Neatly stacked honey-glazed baklava, kataifi and half-moon cashew-crunch pastries fill the spotless window display. But this tiny take-out shop also offers an impressive selection of sandwiches, salads and prepared foods. Lenox Hill locals eat up the $7 falafel platter served with pita, hummus and two generous sides (such as roasted eggplant in a sweet and spicy tomato sauce). Lamb kofta and schnitzel sandwiches are served on a warm pita or baguette, also with two sides. Get your food to go or pull up a stool at the four-person counter, and chat with owners Ahron Matalon and Danieo Multer.
