Because salad chains and leftovers are boring midday fuel-ups, head to Oren’s Hummus. The Israeli spot is a step up from monotonous weekday lunches—for starters, a massive and random chandelier is the dining room’s centerpiece. And the food, from hummus plates and shakshuka to pita sandwiches with falafel or plant-based lamb, will be the star of all future lunchtime fantasies. The fluffy pita is the standout, so definitely get some extra to-go. If you’re in a rush, ordering at the takeout counter adjacent to the restaurant is the move.
