A Falafel Favorite Closes Until July

One of the East Village’s most popular spots for falafel and shawarma is closed temporarily.

The Chickpea location on 14th Street between Second and Third Avenues is undergoing “minor renovations to the kitchen because we’ve had some equipment issues,” said operations director Bill Sharp. The restaurant will re-open at the end of July.

Mr. Sharp said the restaurant closed March 31 because the owners needed to purchase and install new equipment and rearrange existing equipment in the downstairs kitchen.

A sign in the store’s front window directs customers to the restaurant’s other location on Third Avenue near St. Marks Place.
