Flat like a flying saucer, studded with extra sesame seeds for added crunch, and cooked long enough to not be mushy in the middle, Azuri Café's falafel are generally regarded as the best in town, and somebody or other offers me this tip about once a month. Though the falafel themselves are fantastic, the real payoff lies with the dozen salads and dips that come alongside on the platter.
