        Oh no. I work in the city every Tuesday and love my Rafiqi's. What's going on?
        What about the one on Park and 24th? I think that's the main one.

          I walked past it this morning, looks like they had everything fired up and ready.

              I just walked past the one on 6th and 19th, and he's back in business.

                The 47 and Madison is back also. It was all fired up as I passed by this morning.

                    Can't go wrong with the lamb and rice or lamb gyro. I'm not too crazy about the chicken (it lacks flavor, imo). The lunch line forms early but moves quick.

                      Funny...I like the chicken and salad platter with a pita.

                  Probably too late, but I walked past the one on 24th and Park. I've worked near that location for a while now and it's rare if ever that I don't see them in the morning.
