After reading the Carousel posts, I was jonesing for some shawarma. Coincidentally, the Times had a blurb about this spot today. So, I rolled over to 521 W. 7th St., downtown and ordered the shawarma plate. Very good. Nice garlic paste. No pickled beets as at Zankou though. Ultra drab decor. Service still coming together. B rating from the health department, but tasty food. They also have Value Plates for larger parties and they do catering.
