Back in the 1970s I was going to NYU and I would commute downtown from my apartment on the Upper West Side, taking the 1 train. About one block from the Christopher St stop there was this genius falafel stand - actually a hole in the wall shop on west 4th Street. Pretty sure the proprietor was Israeli. Anyway I call him a genius because he made the absolute best falafel I've ever had, and I have tried falafel all over, including Belgium, NYC, San Francisco, many places in Israel, Boston, Atlanta (where I live now). Nothing comes close to the west 4th Street place.. It was large flat disks (he used a contraption that looked like a clam opener) that were wonderfully crispy outside and creamy on the inside. No greens at all were used. It had a light citrus quality but it was not lemony. Kind of like sumac, but it was not colored red. Have been hunting for this recipe for almost 50 years now!
