Today is the last day that the kosher Sakura of Japan will be operating in Midtown Manhattan. The restaurant, which opened in January, was not successful enough for the ownership to keep around. Instead, the Shuk Falafel concept will be replacing the space full time.
Shuk Falafel was a short lived falafel, hummus, and sabich stand that proved successful enough to take full time. The new restaurant, named “SHUK” is expected to open in the former Sakura of Japan space this coming Thursday.
The new Shuk will have a limited but hearty menu serving Israeli faves: falafel, shwarma, sabich, and schnitzel. Click here for the new Shuk menu.
