L'As du Falafel Closed for Sukkot??

Just finalizing my daily eating plans (yes, and everything else!) for next week in Paris....and my calendar is showing me that Sukkot falls on Wednesday and Thursday. Does anyone happen to know if L'As du Falafel will be closed on those days? If so, I'll just have to shift my days around!! Appreciate your help! Thanks!

  1. Might want to try Maoz and La Libanase across from each other for falafel around St Michel

      Rethink Maoz, went today and was dreadful, pita was like concrete, falafal cold, a travesty and they overcharged me.

    2. Why not just go across the street to Mi Va Mi. Better felafel than L'As without the lines. They make their own pitas, too.

      As to your question, I don't know the hours of any of these places. Mi Va Mi's phone number is L'As is 33.1.48 87 63 60. I've heard them speak English to tourists, so you can probably ask even if you don't speak French. Just don't call in the next couple of days - Yom Kippur and Shabbat!

        Well, OK....but my concern was whether any of these places will be open (or not) on Sukkot. The hours don't matter....we'll be there for lunch. If Mi Va Mi is open on Shabbat I assume they'll be open on Sukkot. Seems we'll be lunching there on Wednesday just to be safe! Thanks for the recommendation!

          The whole street of rue des Rosiers pretty much shuts down on Saturdays, like other neighborhoods have their closing days. So being closed that day (which was also Yom Kippur) is not necessarily an indication that they will close on other holidays.

          Have fun!

            They are currently closed until the 26th according to the sign on their rollup door.

              Yes, mrbitterpants. At present it is Pesach so it's logical they are closed. Did anyone ever find an answer to the Sukkot question, though?
