Taim’s Nolita location has very few seats (and they’re all backless stools). All this means you can enjoy your tabouli salad and falafel platter in the privacy of your own home or desk. The Israeli food is reliably good, and most of it is more exciting than what you’ll get at other fast-casual places in the area.
