DF Mavens opening non-dairy ice cream outpost on St. Mark's Place and 2nd Avenue
That prime northwest corner space on Second Avenue and St. Mark's Place has a new tenant — a retail outpost of DF Mavens... as their tagline says, "The finest dairy-free ice cream in the world. Made in NYC."
Their dairy-free desserts have been available in various retail outlets ... though we believe that this is their first dedicated NYC storefront.
Eastside Bakery (.net?) closed down here at the end of April. And once upon a time, the space was home to the Gap in the late 1980s into the early 1990s.
DF Mavens will be arriving in 2014, per the sign.
This came up in the comments: Lula's is back open on East Sixth Street as of Aug. 3.
