7 years later, a Ben & Jerry's is returning to the East Village
Back on Friday, we noted that the former Caffe Bene space was under renovation at 24 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
And yesterday, EVG contributor Derek Berg spotted the coming soon signage for the next tenant — Ben & Jerry's. (H/T to Bayou, who noted in the comments on last Friday's post that a Ben & Jerry's was coming to the block. The former DF Mavens space was also a contender.)
There was a Ben & Jerry's outpost at 41 Third Ave. between Ninth Street and 10th Street for 22 years before its closure in September 2010.
[41 3rd Ave. from 2011]
No word on the opening date just yet on St. Mark's Place.
Caffe Bene closed back in April after 17 months in business. Before Caffe B, the address was a Pinkberry.
