‘Da Falafel Guys’ Coming to Rivington Street, Forged from the Remains of the Falafel Shop
The retail reanimation of 127 Rivington Street includes a bizarro version of its former self.
Seven months later, no longer known as the Falafel Shop, the tiny store is now home to something called Da Falafel Guys. The signage and offering are nearly identical to the predecessor, but it’s under different ownership.
Da Falafel Guys is a hybrid that pairs traditional Mediterranean fare with a “juice bar.” The menu, published below, follows Halal dietary restrictions, and includes its namesake dish alongside items like Shawarma platters, eggplant burger, salads, and juices.
Da Falafel Guys opens next week (March 29).
Eyal Tov, co-owner of Antibes Bistro and Schapiro’s, opened the Falafel Shop in August 2012. All of these restaurant businesses mysteriously shuttered within a short time span late last year.
