The White Plains BID, White Plains Mayor Tom Roach, and Falafel Place owners Tamara and Ehud Cafri celebrated the Grand Opening of Falafel Place with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, May 11 at 3:00 PM.
The Cafris, who owned the highly acknowledged Hummus Place on the Upper West Side for more than 15 years, decided to bring this authentic Middle Eastern (and kosher) food to Westchester by opening Falafel Place in Yonkers in January of 2020. Now, diners can find falafal, shakshuka, babaganush, roasted eggplant, tzatziki and more at his second location in White Plains at 204 Mamaroneck Avenue. The fast casual spot, which soft opened February 17, has a few seats for indoor dining and options for outdoor seating.
Falafel Place has their Kosher Certification, and as of May 5th all locations will be under Kosher supervision. Their menu also offers vegan and gluten free options.
Mayor Roach said, “It’s my pleasure to welcome Falafel Place to White Plains. What a great addition to the diversity of food offerings in our city! I look forward to adding them to my lunch rotation!”
White Plains BID Executive Director Brittany Brandwein explained, “We have been fortunate to have two businesses under Kosher supervision open in the downtown this year. There truly is something for everyone in downtown White Plains.”
