Original Pick-a-Pita Closed For Good; New Location To Open After Holidays
The original Pick-a-Pita (on 38th btw. 7+8th), home of the french fry stuffed schwarma/falafel sandwich, has closed for the holidays (Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur) and will not re-open. Instead the business will shift to their new location on 8th Ave. btw. 39+40th (the former home of House of Pita.) Originally they said they were going to keep both locations open, but that didn’t make any sense. The sign says they will be opening on October 7th, but the guy inside said it would open after the holidays. Considering that Yom Kippur starts at sundown on October 8th, it would make more sense if they opened on the 10th. I guess we’ll see.
The holidays may also explain why some of your favorite Kosher lunch spots were closed at the beginning of the week. Most are back open, but expect Kosher Deluxe, Olympic Pita, Moshe’s Falafel and others to be closed on October 9th (and maybe even the 8th) for Yom Kippur.
