Updated: The new Mamoun's opens tomorrow now on St. Mark's Place

[The new location]

As we first reported back in December, Mamoun's is moving from their longtime home at 22 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue to No. 30 a few storefronts to the east.

And today tomorrow is the grand opening.

The owners of the 45-year-old falafel joint, who signed a 10-year lease, double their size to 1,400 square feet with the move.

The previous tenant at No. 30, Red & Gold Boil, closed after 13 months in business in early October.

Updated 10:30 a.m.

H/T Steven!

Mamoun's Falafel is moving on St. Mark's Place



Look at that hard working Grievestrator! I applaud his commitment to demonstrative journalism ™ and hope a delicious falafel feast is in his future.

Ooooh, slender orange dotty arrows instead of big bold red ones! Is this EV Arrow's new girlfriend?!?


@Gojira Please be more sensitive to the Grievestrator's transition. You're sounding a little transphobic there. We need this to be a safe place for the Millennial readership to thrive. Thank you.

Gojira said...

But NOTORIOUS, I consider both the Grievestrator and Slender Orange Dotty Arrows to be omnigender, adapting - and bending, as we have seen! - to be whatever they want whenever they want. You can't get much more Millennial-friendly than that, can you?


@Gojira You have a point. The Grievestrator doesn't want to be defined by our narrow minded thinking. Which brings me to the next subject: Bathrooms. I hope Mamoun lets the Grievestrator use whichever bathroom makes G feel accepted.

Thank you for the comments. This model of arrows was my idea. (Sidebar: I lobbied for them to be much larger, to no avail.)

There is a push at EVG now to start experimenting more with technology, though arrows don't fall under IT on the org chart. So I'm doing what I can during this time of great change.

So you can expect an animated AR experience coming soon and possibly some claymation.


Or cutting edge zoetrope technology! Maybe IBM Watson can be neighborly and pitch in on this neighborhood initiative?

Claymation...zoetrope...God I love this blog, to say nothing of the level of arcane knowledge displayed by some of its readers.

I am sure Eadweard Muybridge would have had a field day utilizing EV Arrow in his groundbreaking motion-study photography, but since he is no longer with us, then I think Jeff Koons needs to render EVA in shiny metal and display it in the "new" Astor Square.

Mamoun's is salt-of-the-earth. I love that they're a New Haven business.
