Falafels descended on us like miniature spaceships in 1971, when this joint opened. The effect was immediate and lasting. Today there is still a line of cheap Middle Eastern places to prove it. Revisit Mamoun's--where dim lighting and faded ethnographic gewgaws evoke the souks of Beirut and Damascus--to savor an interior unchanged since Dylan sang "Positively 4th Street." You and your date can enjoy a cheap pair of falafel sandwiches slathered with tahini and washed down with steaming cups of cardamom tea. You'll still have money left over for ice cream. There is a second location in the area at 22 St. Marks Place.
