THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pita Joe Restaurant Review

: If Austria and Israel were to collide, the cuisine might look something like what’s on the menu at Pita Joe, a casual eatery on the corner of Fifth Avenue and W. 14th Street. Take the Joe Schnitzel, for example, which is a piece of breaded chicken stuffed in a pita, accompanied by lettuce, tomato and hummus, and doused with tahini (the health conscious can opt for the grilled chicken breast instead). The falafels, which are crispy and flaky at the same time, are made from organic chickpeas and hummus is slightly chunky with a somewhat nutty flavor.
