Profile

Attached to the psychedelic events venue House of Yes, Queen of Falafel has serviceable versions of Middle Eastern standards and fills a much needed niche for the neighborhood. The restaurant, in a small corner of the venue’s corner storefront, is composed of a friendly, compact takeout counter and a dimly lit, narrow room with countertop seating. It looks like vaguely like some guy’s fantasy of Marrakesh, with a tiled floor, rose-themed wallpaper, and red satin curtains pulled up to the ceiling. Created by Rivka Orlin of New York institution Café Mogador, it has a menu is split into platters and sandwiches, like a satisfying and not heavy eggplant sabich with a lively chile-garlic dressing, and a labene cheese plate with za’atar pita. The falafel is satisfying and has a nice crunch; it's not going to win any citywide competitions, but you won’t find any other falafel on this level around the neighborhood. There are usually specials, like Tunisian-style meatballs in tomato sauce, as well generic canned drinks and a more thematically appropriate mint lemonade. Five sauces, like the pickled mango chutney amba and tahini, are available for spiking your meal, allowing some customization. But in a neighborhood brimming with pernil and deep-fried New American cooking, the restaurant’s chief appeal is the vegetable-heavy, healthier cuisine it offers on the go.
