One of the area’s best late-night drunk-food destinations has just hit Clarendon. Amsterdam Falafelshop opened yesterday at 3024 Wilson Blvd.
The Arlington menu will be the same as that of its D.C. counterparts in Adams Morgan an on 14th Street NW: Fried falafel balls come stuffed in a bowl or pita with as many pickled vegetables, sauces, and salads as you can pack in without the whole thing toppling over. This location, however, will not serve beer.
The restaurant will open daily at 11 a.m. It closes at midnight on Sundays and Mondays, 2:30 a.m on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 3 a.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.
David Rosenstein, owner of the Clarendon franchise as well as several Popeye’s, plans to open more Amsterdam Falafelshops in Georgetown, downtown D.C., Bethesda, and Silver Spring.
