16th Street Gourmet
This venue is closed.
Not much bigger than a walk-in closet, this tiny take-out joint (tucked around the corner from a 24-hour grocer) has barely enough room for two standing customers inside. The one small table outside is most often occupied by the owner’s family or friends. Nevertheless, the cramped kitchen churns out a steady supply of solid Arabic street food for Windsor Terrace commuters eager to get home and evening picnickers on their way to Prospect Park. Like the size of the space and the hours of operation, the menu is limited in scope: falafels, kebabs, and shawarmas are paired with foule, hummus or stuffed grape leaves. Defying expectations, 16th Street Gourmet does have a soup-of-the-day.Recommended Dishes
