The Hummus & Pita Co. is opening a second location in Tribeca next week at 79 Chambers Street. (Currently the chain's flagship (and sole) location is in Chelsea at 585 6th Avenue.) The new location has 32 seats and will feature two new taftoons (clay ovens).
Meanwhile, one of the city's other fast-casual Mediterranean joints, Meze Grill, has shuttered. It has a special place in our heart as it was a longtime favorite of Zagateers (when we worked uptown). We'll be pouring one out for you tonight, Meze. (Pouring out some hummus, that is.)
