There is no better place to eat falafel than the original Columbia outpost Amir's founded in 1971 by Joseph Samad (Heights Restaurant & Samad's Gourmet). A poet by avocation Joe and his Nephews have o...verseen the Morningside eatery through the years making sure the recipes of the Amir's are lovingly maintained. Recently invigorated with the help of his sons, Feras and Nizar, Amir's menu and interior have been streamlined and redesigned, but the freshness of ingredients and daily preparation of the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern standards has not changed.
Offering a congenial atmosphere, with friendly prompt service and with affordability Amir's hits a trifecta that keeps the Columbia students, athletes, administrators and neighborhood locals happy. A whole wheat tortilla with french fries, garlic mayonnaise sauce, and rotisserie chicken, the toasted chicken wrap, is a new classic and one of a few new must haves. So please skip down Broadway and pop into Amir's offering great meals at affordable prices.
