The first Atlanta location of New York City’s oldest falafel restaurant, Mamoun’s Falafel, opens Saturday, January 25, at the West Midtown Center complex between 17th Street and Northside Drive, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page.
It’s one of six planned locations by franchisees Kalki Patel and Parimal Patel for the Atlanta and Athens areas. In addition to falafel, Mamoun’s menu includes shawarma, baklava, hummus, and baba ganoush.
Mamoun’s has some competition in the area with Tannour Grill on 14th Street, the newly opened Falafel Nation at nearby Westside Provisions District, and Bezoria, Cafe Agora, and Yalla at The Canteen in Midtown.
Mamoun Chater first opened Mamoun’s Falafel in Greenwich Village in 1971. There are now ten locations throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Atlanta is the first Southern outpost for the falafel chain.
Open daily 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
