The Falafel Shop, a vegetarian Middle Eastern place, is a casual, order-at-the-counter joint, with nineteen seats surrounded by poured concrete floors and reclaimed wood. The menu offers five sandwiches—falafel; the Israeli eggplant-stuffed pita called sabich—as well as four salads and freshly squeezed juices. Sides include classics (hummus, baba ghannouj, and the savory puff pastry bureka) and some less-traditional options (French fries, yucca fries, homemade pita chips).
