At most places, falafel is the star, not the afterthought. Not so at Gina, which is not actually the name of a grandmotherly figure, but rather the nickname given to owner Yaakov Agmon as a child by his neighbors (‘Gina’ means ‘We came’ in Arabic). Gina started out as a pita palace, churning out the softest, freshest pitas. When it became clear that people were bringing their own pitas from Gina to eat at other restaurants and falafel and shawarma stands, Agmon decided that it was time to venture into the falafel business himself, and the neighbors are glad he did.
