Mamoun's Falafel Brings A Piece Of The Middle East To New Haven
Mamoun's Falafel should get something like a lifetime achievement award for New Haven restaurants, maybe even an a cappella bar song (“From the Mabrumeh down at Mamoun's...”) to nudge it closer to Pepe’s, Louis’, Claire’s and Whoever-Else’s in the local pantheon of culinary institutions. Back in the 1980s, before New Haven's restaurant renaissance, when it was really tough for insomniacs to find a safe place to sit and sip, Mamoun's was a lifeline. Along with its grainy Turkish coffee, the dolma was such a bonus.
