Goldie is the fast casual falafel shop from the people behind Zahav and Federal Donuts, and it’s a good go-to for a weeknight lunch or dinner when you don’t have the energy to make too many decisions or sit down for a multi-course meal. They have a pretty short menu, but that’s because they do one thing really well - falafel. It’s flavorful and crispy, and you can get it with a few different sauces, but the harissa is our favorite. Also, you should save room for a tehina milkshake - they’re fantastic.
