With a Middle Eastern take-out joint located on nearly every other block of lower Manhattan, you might wonder, "Aren't all falafel sandwiches the same?" One bite of a falafel from Mamoun's and you'll know just how silly a question that is. As almost any NYU student can tell you, Mamoun's is the king of downtown falafel. Apparently the restaurant is stuck in a time-warp, because the prices never increase. For just $2.50, you have a choice of a falafel, baba ghanoush, or hummus sandwich. You can spend more on a platter, but with almost no seating and a constant line, it's just not worth the trouble. Get your sandwich to go, and if you need to sit down, stroll over to nearby Washington Square Park. If you've just left one of the bars on Bleecker Street with a serious hunger to satisfy, stroll over to Mamoun's. It's open till the wee hours of the morning, every day of the year. Sandwiches from $3 to $5.
