Literally engulfed by a Dunkin’ Donuts, the Pita Hut is actually hut-sized, with a little take-out window on one side. Inside, there’s one table, a counter and a few stools, and the requisite blaring TV. The typical falafel-stand menu—hummus, babaganoush, grape leaves, various meat gyros, shish kebabs, and combinations thereof— is here augmented by a few smart vegetarian dishes like curry, lasagna, and baked eggplant (homemade, judging by the bowlful of them sitting inside the refrigerated case, waiting to be cooked). And the vegetarian stuff is a standout, particularly anything with that eggplant. Also not to be missed: The mile-long smoothie list. The Hawaiian Fizz—pineapple, fresh ginger root, apples, seltzer—will wipe away even the most garlicky breath. Dinner and oral hygiene: What more could you want from a hut?Recommended Dishes
