Cheap EV Favorite Tahini Shuttered by the DOH
Tahini dark during the shank of the dinner hour Tuesday
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.
The spoor of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, which has closed Tahini.
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.
