This kosher Middle Eastern spot is useful for a ton of different situations, from healthy solo lunches to hangover-preventing snacks after some drinks at Station House across the street. Along with salads and sides, the menu consists mainly of falafel and various cuts of meats that come in pitas or on platters. Our favorite thing here is the falafel platter, which has a lot of crunchy, spiced falafel over a massive plate of hummus, baba ghanoush, potato salad, and pickled vegetables. This place is right under the LIRR and a block from the subway, so keep it in mind for a quick bite or takeout before leaving or after getting back to the neighborhood.
