Fodor's Expert Review Taïm

$ West Village Middle Eastern

There's a real chef behind this casual, tiny sliver of a restaurant, New York's only gourmet falafel stand. Taïm means "tasty" in Hebrew, and Tel Aviv transplant Einat Admony's fried chickpea balls are delicious, and available in several beguiling flavors (try them infused with spicy harissa sauce) alongside a tantalizing à la carte salads (the carrot with Moroccan spices is a standout). There's another location in NoLIta, on Spring Street between Mott and Mulberry.
