Einat Admony’s fast-casual kosher Taim (tagline: “It’s a vegetarian mecca”) has made good on its promise to get New Yorkers feasting on chickpeas and pitas with the opening of its newest Financial District location, which happens to be dangerously close to the Forward’s own offices.
Taim is a Hebrew word meaning tasty or delicious. After beginning as a tiny West Village storefront where Admony could serve all the sabich, s’rug and amba her customers could handle, it expanded into Midtown, NoLita and Flatiron locations.
So between Balaboosta and Kish Kash and Taim Fidi, we here at the Forward aren’t exactly lacking for Einat Admony options. But which casual Mediterranean style lunch joint will reign supreme?
