Discovery: Cafe Posh

The size and presentation of Cafe Posh’s falafel are unmistakably Israeli. Shimon Edery, who owns this attractive, modern cafe with his wife, Simona, grinds soaked chickpeas with spices, herbs, and vegetables and shapes them into big, hunky croquettes. Fried in fresh oil, the falafel are sandwiched in soft, thick pita with a satisfying amount of hummus, tahini, roasted eggplant, diced tomatoes, cucumber, romaine lettuce, and a touch of homemade red pepper harissa or zehug—a green sauce made with herbs, fresh garlic, hot peppers, and extra virgin olive oil. They are a huge favorite of mine.
