L. E. Daily Tips: Taïm

Do you love falafel? Have a ridiculous french fry weakness like me? TaÏm in NYC is the answer! This tiny spot in the West Village packs a huge punch when it comes to taste and quality. Opened in 2005 by husband and wife team, Chef Einat Admony and Stefan Nafziger, with a desire to bring Tel Aviv street food to NYC. Their pitas/falafels are fresh and delicious and I rank their crispy french fries as some of the best in the city. And any visit without grabbing a cup of their ginger-mint lemonade is simply a mistake. Just bring a little patience as the lines can be long. Thankfully, there is also a location in Nolita as well!
