Falafix is Fried After One Year on Stanton Street
Well, that was quick. Stanton Street newcomer, Falafix, is reportedly out of business. Fried after one year on the block.
The restaurant shuttered a couple weeks ago. Word on the street is that business was too slow to sustain. One particular customer complained on Yelp about finding the store “closed, with doors locked, lights off, and no explanation on their website or calling them.” Our experience is the same; phone rings forever without answer.
The fast-casual Mediterranean spot opened at 90 Stanton Street one year ago. Then, a few months after debut, it became a certified kosher restaurant.
The closure of Falafix marks the second such loss of a falafel joint on the Lower East Side behind Da Falafel Guys.
