Pick-a-Pita’s New Digs Seem to Be Working Out


Unlike House of Pita, which struggled to get their customers to travel to 8th Ave. from their original 48th Street location, Pick-a-Pita seems to be having no trouble keeping their clientele.  Granted their original location (on 38th btw. 7+8th) is around the corner from the new larger location (on 8th Ave. btw. 39+40th_… but this line seems longer than anything they were ever dealing with at the original location.  It looks like the Mandler’s curse may be broken.


  • Keep in mind the old pick-a-pita location wasn’t exactly a storefront, you had to walk through the building’s devliery entrance to get there. This location is much easier to identify.
    Although pick-a-pita is good, for my money the best cheap eats in that area is Go-Go Curry hands down. (No I do not work for GG and am not a shill, just a fan)

  • I ate there last week–it was crowded. Falafel was okay.
