The refrain of winter 2015 is "weather-permitting." Amsterdam Falafelshop's second Boston-area location could open this weekend, according to a Twitter reply from the local outpost of the D.C.-based chain.
In addition to five locations around the nation's capital, Amsterdam Falafelshop entered the Boston market with a franchise in Davis Square nearly three years. It has always planned to grow, and last May, a lease signed at 642 Beacon St. was the first step toward the Kenmore location. With renovation of the former Boca Grande space taking place this winter, the team recently joked that they did it on snowshoes.
When the new shop opens, like the other branches, it'll serve up DIY, Netherlands-style meals revolving around the namesake fried chickpea balls.
