Sam's Falafel -- where is he now????

There was a guy, Sam, who had a falafel cart on Liberty and Broadway, southwest corner, at the end of the "business man" park that used to be downtown by WTC. He had the BEST falafel in the whole world. Does anyone remember? On nice days in the summer the line would go from B'way to Church, and you'd have to wait 1/2 hour for a $2 falafel. The last falafel I had from him was 9/10/01. It was raining and I liked to go there in bad weather because the line was short. He always gave me extra deep fried pita chips.

Anyways, I know he mentioned he had a restaurant in the Village. I now work in midtown and the falafel here stinks. It's $3 and it just doesn't taste as good.

Has anyone seen his cart downtown or midtown or know of his restaurant? The cart said "Sam's Falafel" and he only sold falfels and eggplant, no extraneous street meats and rice.

Or if you know of a good falafel only cart in midtown off 6th Ave in the 50's......

Thanks -- Tessa
