If you're someone that likes diet, watered down alcohol and also believe in chauvinistic, sexist terminology, then go to the pub and ask for a "Girl Pint."
If you ate 3 bowls of old English Porridge and go running, you will be out of breath. I call it a "Gruel Pant."
And, if you're someone that points at girls, then go to Girl Point. And by the way you're a creep.
But if you like Falafel. Go to Grill f***ing Point.
What to get: Falafel
What else: Shawarma
What's the point in telling me what to order: Um… I thought…
I'm just kidding. Get it? Point? Grill Point?: Oh. I get it. Hmm.
Hmm what? You don't get it. Do you: No, I totally get it dude. I just…
What then?: Maybe leave the jokes to me in future.
…: This is awkward.
…: On with the review then. (shakes head)
If it was full of people hanging out and relaxing, it'd be Chill Point.
I've been to Grill Point three times now, and each time I am thoroughly impressed. It's a little on the pricy side, especially if you order the fancy stuff and veer away from the tried and tested Falafel. But if you stick to the basics, you'll be under $10 and having a wonderful meal.
If they made cereals, it'd be Mill Point.
I think Mamoun's has the best Shawarma in NYC (although the Hoboken location is better), and when they mix it with Falafel it is even better. But for pure Falafel, I choose Grill Point. It's a 5 star place. It's run by Israelis and a lot of the employees are Israeli too as far as I can tell. It's very authentic, to say the least.
If they were an awful sports team in France, it'd be Nil Points.
Basically you ask for a falafel, they give you a delicious fluffy fresh pita stuffed with hot lightly spiced amazing falafel balls, and then you go to the salad bar and fill your pita with every type of Israeli deliciousness you can find. You're also allowed to fill a container up with salad as well, up to a certain point. And the salads are off-the-charts good and very homestyle and authentic too.
If they were all murderers, and this restaurant was where they did all their evil deeds, it'd be Kill Point.
In other words this is an experience that you do not want to miss. The second best authentic Israeli food I've had, and while the service can be brusque and prickly, the food is not. It's amazing. Besides, there was one girl last time I was here who cut in front of the other bored servers to get to me and take care of me, so to speak. She was super, duper nice and very flirty and chatty. So I really appreciated that, because on the phone they're usually dour, and in person most of them are indifferent or a little hostile. I don't care though. I'm all about the food.
If they overcharge you, which might happen since they're kind of not great servers most of the time… then you'd have to argue over your Bill Points.
By the way, the best Falafel and Shawarma I've ever eaten is nearby. It's in Roslyn on Long Island, and it's called Hummus World. Their "Shawafel" is one of the 20 best things I have ever eaten, from anywhere, in any country, in my life. Unfortunately, I got the horrible news that they have closed down due to a rent dispute, as of about 3 months ago. I am waiting patiently for news of them reopening. It was a lovely tiny little place.
If Grill Point closed down too, it'd be renamed Still Point.
I'm happy that Grill Point and Mamoun's still exist, and hopefully always will. But Hummus World was my sun and moon and shining star when it came to Shawarma, Falafel and Israeli food. So I am really hoping they will be back soon. I have my fingers crossed, and my tummy is rumbling in anticipation. You must try it when it opens. You simply must. I would drive 8 hours to Long Island from Buffalo just for a Shawafel. Seriously. And I have done.
If they were also a gas station, it'd be Fill Point. Same thing if they provided studly gigolos too I suppose.
But in the meantime… Grill Point is very very good Israeli food, and if you like Falafel and you're anywhere near Queens… you have to try this one. It's that good.
And if they were on the side of a mountain, it'd be Hill Point.
If you could write your last testament here, then Will Point. Similarly if Grace walked out on her friend, and he came here to be depressed, it'd be Will Point.
If all the servers had acne, it'd be Clearasil Point.
If they had coughs, then maybe Benadryl Point.
And finally, if they were drug dealers, it would be Pill Point. Which would be a really catchy name, and I should patent that asap. I'm not saying they're not drug dealers by the way. I mean they may be. How would I know? If you wanna know, come in and ask them. Hey do you guys sell drugs. I'm sure they'll be cool about it. Or perhaps you can get carpets here. In which case they'd be Rug Dealers. You could come in and ask for carpets. Persian Rugs maybe. I mean, they're Israeli, so why not? The Israelis love the Persians right? BFFs? I think? No?
