For Washingtonians, Amsterdam Falafel is basically the place to inhale after-hours falafel and mayo-drenched frites. (It doesn’t hurt that the shop is in the middle of Adams Morgan, a neighborhood rife with bars and late-night denizens of every persuasion, and that the garnish bar is stocked with every bizarre condiment known to man, and some unknown to man.) Now, lucky for us, Amsterdam’s owners want to ship up to Boston!
According to the Washington City Paper, the beloved falafelery wants to branch out to Boston because, per owner Arianne Bennett, there are “lots of walking neighborhoods, kind of like our neighborhood … families, tourists, very much a community.”
Fry/condiment-wise, the closest we have is probably Saus, though we’re hoping Amsterdam doesn’t end up lost in the Faneuil Hall shuffle. It’s more the type of place that would do really well in Central Square.
Oh, and if you happen to be in D.C., drop into Amsterdam Falafel and leave your card. They promise to call all visiting Bostonians when they open.
