Grub Street just popped into Davis Square’s shiny new Amsterdam Falafelshop (you wouldn’t even know Diva Lounge used to be there), and we talked to ultra-friendly owner Matt D’Alessio. He says that AF is aiming for a Friday or Saturday soft open.
Basically, he’s just waiting on inspections, which he’s been told will happen Thursday or Friday. Worst-case scenario, expect a soft open on Saturday, with samplings of Amsterdam delicacies like falafel and fries (naturally!), plus that killer condiment bar. Just in time for the Fourth of July long weekend … oh wait. Regardless, this puts a little spring in our step.
