Pita Grill--Worst Falafel Ever!

JeffZee | May 18, 2009 11:37 AM

Just had the singular worst falafel experience ever at Pita Grill on 7th Avenue & W26/27 Street in Chelsea. For starters, it seems they bake and not fry the falafel, which is probably the seeds of why their falafel sucks. The falafel I had was uncooked in the center and eating a mush of chickpea flavored ingredients does not make for good eating. And their standard issue "carrot tehina" is also appalling. I used to believe the old axiom that any falafel is good falafel until my run-in with Pita Grill. If you do go to this chain of NYC restaurants, do not order the falafel.
