Falafel Bistro’s quick-serve Mediterranean menu is lined with classic house specialties and vegetarian-friendly dishes. Kick-start the meal with ground-chickpea-and-tahini-infused hummus or dolmades, grape leaves stuffed with rice and garnished with feta cheese. Chickpeas relax in a hot tub of herbs and spices in the chickpea tagine, and in the bistro chicken kebab entree, cubes of marinated chicken breast consult with basmati rice and fresh pita to determine the best way to tell the house salad that it’s looking green. Chefs prepare the beef shawarma with thin slices of rotisserie-cooked beef, prep the mushroom shawarma with a yogurt-and-spice marinade, and decorate each entree with basmati rice, house salad, and freshly baked pita.

Falafel Bistro

The smell of baking pitas wafts from the ovens at Falafel Bistro, where chefs churn out steamy pocket bread and loads of healthy, vegetarian-friendly Mediterranean cuisine. Pitas serve as the base for the eatery’s namesake dish, which stuffs the freshly cooked dough disks with fried spheres of ground chickpeas, herbs, and garlic. Over at the rotisserie, beef and chicken rotate while slowly collecting the heat required to transmogrify into plates of shawarma, and cuts of lamb share skewer space with sliced, impeccably punctured veggies. Each of Falafel Bistro's entrees emerges from the kitchen with a pat of basmati rice, scoops of house salad, and pita frisbee. After diners polish off main courses, they can peel through layers of dough, honey, walnut, and pistachio—the building blocks of baklava—or predict futures that involve cars equipped with fog lights as steam twirls above mugs of mint tea.

Customer Reviews

It is more casual, pick up something to eat, rather than a leisurely sit down restaurant. Food and staff were both very good.
