Grub Street just popped into Davis Square's shiny new Amsterdam Falafelshop (you wouldn't even know Diva Lounge used to be there), and we talked to ultra-friendly owner Matt D'Alessio. He says that AF is aiming for a Friday or Saturday soft open.
Basically, he's just waiting on inspections, which he's been told will happen Thursday or Friday. Worst-case scenario, expect a soft open on Saturday, with samplings of Amsterdam delicacies like falafel and fries (naturally!), plus that killer condiment bar. Just in time for the Fourth of July long weekend ... oh wait. Regardless, this puts a little spring in our step.
