The three-stool Middle Eastern takeout joint has morphed into a 48-seat Middle Eastern restaurant just two blocks away from the original location. Co-owner Mouhamed Shami still makes the best—and neatest—falafel sandwich in town, meticulously rolled in an unusually thin and pliant pita, like a burrito, so that all the harmonious components merge in every bite. Also a great source for Middle Eastern appetizers and delicious lamb or vegetarian kibbeh.
