1st) Mamoun's Falafel Restaurant
"Aside from being open til 3 a.m. every single day of the year, Mamoun’s has an edge on 95 percent of other falafel joints around the world. Rather than use a mix, the staff at Mamoun's makes fresh falafel from scratch. The process takes two days to complete, but the taste is worth the effort. The staff also makes its own tahini and hot sauce, which is so powerful you only need a tiny dab to feel the burn. The items they don’t make in-house are imported from specific distributors who carry the most authentic tastes. The restaurant also has a hookah available to customers on the sidewalk tables during the summer. "
