Well, I finally made it over--wanted to honor the tradition of fried food for the first day of Chanukah, and thought of falafel. Everything I've read on this board was spot-on--incredible falafel, chumus, and toppings. The falafel was delicately prepared, and full of flavor. Fried just right. The chumus couldn't have been better--among the best I've ever tasted with lemony zest and creamy texture. I was impressed with the range of accoutrements--much better than the other joints in the city. I liked the romaine lettuce in particular, which lightened up the sandwich and made it feel a little bit healthier. And the bread, not pita but pita-like, was also quite good. Azuri himself is at once short and cold (to me) and warm and nurturing (to his regulars). I see why these folk come back. $5 for a falafel, which is slightly more expensive than other falafels in Manhattan, but you really do get what you pay for.
