Dirk Flanigan Wraps Up Charity Falafel for Falafill

New, 2 comments

It may seem like an act of solidarity of Michigan Avenue restaurants, but Dirk Flanigan likely chose philanthropy over politics when he agreed to create an original charity wrap for Falafill. The Gage/Henri chef is the latest to team with the fast-casual restaurant to help raise funds for a charity group; proceeds from Flanigan's wrap will benefit the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.

Flanigan created his own recipe for the falafel using black beluga lentils that give the sandwich a peppery taste. He tops it with his own housemade shallot duck vinaigrette, made with the cracklings and duck fat, crunchy frisée, radish, pickle and giardiniera. The whole mix ends up in one of Falafill's artisan baked pitas. If you don't eat meat, request to have the duck vinaigrette substituted out. Get Flanigan's falafel at both locations for $6.50 and start thinking about what RIA's Danny Grant will create for July.
