Update: Wrapro Falafel and Grille to Replace Sabra Grill in Cambridge's Harvard Square

[Ed note: This article was updated on December 10 to reflect confirmation of which space Wrapro is taking over.]

It looks like a quick-service eatery located between Cambridge's Porter Square and Harvard Square is planning to open a location in Harvard Square itself, and it may be replacing another dining spot.

According to a License Commission General Hearing page within the city of Cambridge website, Wrapro Falafel & Grille on Mass. Ave. is looking to open a shop on Eliot Street (apparently moving into the space where Sabra Grill is), with the new place having seating for 10 and proposed hours from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM Monday through Saturday and 12:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Sundays. It is not yet known whether this is a move for Wrapro or a second location; as soon as we find out, we will post an update here.

[December 10 update: According to a poster on the Chowhound site, Sabra Grill is now closed and the windows now show decals for Wrapro; a call placed to Sabra indicates that its phone is out of service, and a check on its website shows that it may have been hacked. (The Manta site notes that Sabra had been in the space since 1997.)]

[February 4, 2016 update: Eater Boston states that Wrapro is now open in the former Sabra Grill space, and it is indeed a second location of the eatery.]

Wrapro Falafel & Grille offers a variety of wraps and plates, including chicken shawarma, falafel, hummus, tabouli, baba ghannouj, kofta kabob, and more.

The address for the new Wrapro (and Sabra Grill) is 20 Eliot Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138. The website for the original Wrapro on Mass. Ave. can be found at
