Tamam Falafel has closed on 14th Street; new location in the works

After a year at 150 E. 14th St. at Third Avenue, Tamam Falafel has shut down its operations here.

However, ownership, which includes Simon Oren who runs 5 Napkin Burger next door, announced that Taman will reopen elsewhere (and their UES location remains in service).

Per an Instagram post last evening...
The plant-based Tamam Falafel took over this space from 5 Napkin Burger Express in January 2021.

smart move, probably do better business on a different street. 14th street is not a good place to open a restaurant, one of the worst streets in all of nyc.

Price point too high for Falafal and had odd off-putting menue choices

Having tried Tamam a couple of times, I can say with confidence that it will NOT be missed :-)

It wasn't a restaurant, 4:07, just a counter service.
And yes, the price was too high, but nothing too odd on the menu. Pretty similar to many falafel counters in Tel Aviv.
