This miniscule takeout restaurant is efficiently run to handle the huge crowds which line up outside their door. The manager is aware of gluten-free issues and if you tell him you're gluten-free, he'll point out which items on the menu are right for you. I had the falafel salad bowl for which the choice of salads and dressings is large and delicious. For ten dollars including tax I also had a 16oz lemonade. Perfect healthy lunch.

GLUTEN-FREE VEGETARIAN LUNCH FROM MAOZ
About a year ago I emailed Maoz to find out if they were gluten-free. (I'd been looking at their online menu and was glad to see so many vegetarian foods.) I received an email telling me that, sadly, they were not gluten-free. Months later I received another email announcing that they now served gluten-free options. I was shocked to realize that someone had actually kept my email, and delighted at the news. It took almost a year since that note, last week, in fact, to finally make my way to Maoz. The one I visited was on 39th & 7th, near Times Square.
