A legit New York favorite since 1971.Want to know how Mamoun's has remained the most beloved falafel restaurant in New York for 40 years? Their falafel is incredible. It's that simple. They were the first falafel shop to open its doors here, and have been churning out flawless, fresh, authentic dishes ever since. Along the way, they've snagged hundreds of accolades, loyal celebrity fans, and a spot in 1,000 Places to See Before You Dieif you've been looking to scratch something off of that list, now's your chance to do it. You won't even need a long lunch break to get it done: even when there's a line winding out of their tiny St. Marks Place outpost, the high energy staff fills falafel orders like they've been at it since the seventies. Besides, standing with the crowd is part of the experience; no matter who we are before we get to Mamoun's, in this line, we're just hungry New Yorkers, grateful that we can reach some of the world's best Middle Eastern food without hopping a plane.
