The Falafel Shop on Rivington Takes a ‘Maintenance’ Break, Should Return Next Week
You may have noticed that the Falafel Shop on Rivington Street wasn’t open all week. An explanation as to why didn’t actually materialize until yesterday. According to a laminate on the shuttered gate, the popular four-year-old Mediterranean joint closed for routine “maintenance,” but should reopen “middle of next week.
Eyal Tov founded the Falafel Shop around this time four years ago. This brief scare happened a couple weeks after his other property, Schapiro’s, foundered across the street. Tov also co-owns Antibes Bistro around the corner on Suffolk Street.
