Cheap EV Favorite Tahini Shuttered by the DOH
On the edge of the Cooper Union campus and close to the NYU dorms, Tahini is a favorite for students seeking inexpensive Middle Eastern fare with an Israeli bent, especially falafel, chicken schwarma, bread dips like hummus and babaganoush, and the boiled-egg sandwich called sabbich. But now the place has been closed by the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, a yellow warning sign glued to the front door.
Unfortunately, the DOH website has no record of a preemptively bad inspection, and calls to the restaurant go unanswered. Fork in the Road will inform you as new info becomes available.
