Nish Nush 04-18-2013

Location: 88 Reade St.
Time: 12:30pm
People: ALev and myself

Feelings: When it comes to amazing falafel and hummus, there are plenty of spots throughout the city. Taim, AzuriMimi's and Kulushkat are some of my favorites. The new falafel spot in Tribeca, Nish Nush, on the corner of Reade and Church, is a solid cheap lunch addition. It may not be quite the best in the city, but if I worked or resided in the area, it would be a welcoming addition to the neighborhood.

Shakshuka ($9, with two organic eggs) was fresh and delicately flavored with a kick, and the serving was more than generous. ALev enjoyed "Classic Forever" ($6, green falafel, hummus, Israeli salad, tahini) with a comment of "It's not the best I've had, but great!"

Their homemade pita is appropriately fluffy and perfect support for the egg dishes or sandwiches.

Perhaps the best part of this joint is their quick and friendly service and the casual, welcoming vibe of the dining area. High stools are indeed the #1 enemy of high heels, but with the cute chickpea tables and counters, Nish Nush has a modern vibe without any attitude. It is the sort of a place that finance dudes, parents waiting for a pick up time from preschool nearby, and SoHo workers can all quickly grab freshly tasting food.
