Overheard at XPL: “What’s Falafel?”
Lunch’er “PK” sends this description of what it was like to wait on line at XPL (on 48th & Park) yesterday: “It’s clear that the NYT article is bringing out people who would not normally come out. One guy was literally holding a copy of the dining section as he came up to the cart, checked the fruit cart right next to XPL to make sure that wasn’t the cart mentioned in the article, before getting in line. He asked what a falafel was and then got a falafel sandwich. One other guy asked “What cut of lamb is it?” which I almost laughed out loud at. Gyro meat is not exactly a niman ranch lamb shank.” Awesome.
