An award-winning news site covering the East Village of NYC
One of the first (if not the first) Falafel stand in NYC was on 1st Avenue at 14th St, next to the First Federal Bank, in a tiny closet of a space. This was back in 1967-68 or so, and falafel cost maybe 75 cents. Ah.... the olden days :-)
I just ate falafel semi al fresco with my puppy. I say semi because it was a window seat. They haven't put their outdoor tables yet. They have at least 10 guys working there. You get a ticket after you pay. It was a wonderful feeling to be there on their first day. Great to see a spot that's so rooted in the EV expand! And the falafel tasted even better than before!
Nothing here is artisanal or bespoke, I love it, going for lunch tomorrow!
It don't take a genius to see that that is Albert Einstein!
Who knew a little falafel shop would end up as one of the very last strongholds of old world NYC coolness. By old world I mean 20th century.
Best I've ever had. One of the rare "oh they are the best" places I fully agree with.
Tastes so good because it's sooo cheap!!
