Falafel King to Replace Eat Kitchen in Downtown Boston

A new Falafel King is opening, joining two other locations in Boston's Downtown Crossing and Quincy Center, with this one taking over a space near Downtown Crossing where another restaurant has been.

A poster on the Chowhound site appears to have confirmed a rumor that we recently heard, namely that Falafel King is going to open on Washington Street in the Eat Kitchen space (Eat Kitchen has been in business there since last summer). Yesterday the poster said that "there is a big sign for Falafel King in the Eat Kitchen window," though at the time there was a question as to whether Falafel King and Eat Kitchen might be sharing the space rather than Falafel King simply taking it over. Today, the poster mentioned that "the signage changed this morning. Looks like the entire place will be Falafel King."

Currently, locations of Falafel King can be found on Winter Street in Boston and Hancock Street in Quincy.

[September 4 update: According to a poster on Chowhound, the new Falafel King on Washington Street is now open for business.]

The address for this new Middle Eastern restaurant in downtown Boston is: Falafel King, 260 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02108.

Do you have reason to believe the two Falafel Kings are the same entity? My understanding is that the Quincy Falafel King was opened by the brother of the Downtown Crossing establishment. A Boston Globe article in 2008 said that using the name of the established restaurant was a welcome gift to the brother.

If the new one coming to Washington Street is being opened by someone outside of the family, I'd assume there'd be a legal battle over the name, so it's a pretty sure bet that someone in the family is opening the place.

My comment was to say that because the two are run by siblings and share a name doesn't make them the same business, just wondering if, from a business perspective, they actually are.
