Meet a Lower Manhattan Business: Chickpea


Each week we feature a local business. This week, we’ll introduce you to Chickpea, at 110 William Street.

Fast food has changed dramatically in recent years, trending toward fresher, healthier, and with more variety.

Case in point: Chickpea, where the underlying theme is visible from almost anywhere in the store: “Always Baked. Never Fried.”

“We take a lot of pride in what we do and how we do it,” Manager Larry Bloom said.

The shawarma platters, hummus and tabouli, and four varieties of falafel are cooked on the premises. Falafel toppings are freshly chopped. And everything on the menu is under 600 calories.

No soggy burgers here.
