    One of my favorite places to eat in NYC. When I lived in this neighborhood I ate here every week. The falafel sandwich and hummus are awesome and super affordable.

    Food is great, and service has been solid in the past but tonight was pretty poor. Food took a long time, and they forgot to bring some of it. We had to get up and get napkins and forks for ourselves

    We tried 3 of the platters; falafel, grilled veggies, and shawarma—all were excellent. Babaganouj was 💯. BYOB, FYI.

    Love the 5 Meze combo! I don't know the names (I always have to ask) but the red one (I think it's sun-dried tomato) is amazing

    Good to know: it's still BYOB but they've introduced a $5 corkage fee for wine. That said they now offer a house wine and it's only $11 for a carafe.

    BYOB. Before you go across the street to Smith & Vine for wine, you may want to ask if Zaytoon's has a corkage fee that day

    There is now a corkage fee of $5 on the weekend. Still a great deal, especially when the weather is nice and you can sit outside.

    Lentil soup is good, but mostly, get something involving chicken kebobs (sandwich or platter)... They are charred and delicious.

    Goat cheese pizza is amazing. The shawarma and chicken kabobs are also delcious. Not a big fan of their falafel, though.

    for lunch: get the falafel sandwich to-go. rolled neatly and narrow for mess-free consumption. the sliced gherkins set it apart. you're out the door for under $5 & in under 5 minutes.

    Why don't more byob restaurants partner with neighboring wine shops? I get, it's a case by case basis, but foursquare should help create this relationship, right?
