The Falafel Shop to Open at 127 Rivington Tomorrow

Posted on: August 21st, 2012 at 6:18 am by

As we first reported earlier this summer, the Falafel Shop is set to open at 127 Rivington Street. Located in the space that previously housed Botanica San Lazaro, the new vegetarian eatery is the handiwork of Antibes co-owner Eyal Tov.

Build-out has been slow-but-steady since late April during various positions of gate closure; white retractable awning and storefront flag appeared last week. When we ambled past yesterday evening, the dining area was nearly ready for seating…if not for the clutter and grime. One worker cleaning the interior informed us that launch is sometime tomorrow.

Look out, Bereket!

Carolina Sarria Boutique Opening at 149 Ludlow Street

Blessed Peacemakers relinquished control of 149 Ludlow Street in the summer of 2014. It was a tough run for the boutique, considering its entire two-years of existence were spent behind a business-killing shield of plywood and scaffolding. Seriously, construction on the block had a sidewalk bridge here for some four years. Until a couple months […]
