Cheers Cut has not been open lately on St. Mark's Place

Cheers Cut, the "Taiwanese-inspired" fast-food mini-chain at 36 St. Mark's Place, has not been open lately during announced business hours. ... and the phone to the quick-serve restaurant is no longer in service.
Cheers Cut just opened last fall here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. They quickly made a name for themselves selling large fried slabs of chicken and squid. The place did have a temporary feel to it, with a entrance still marked by the previous business — Village Gifts ... as well as a "Grand Opening" banner nine months after actually opening.
In any event, this may just be an unannounced temporary closure. (The Cheers Cut Facebook account is still on robo mood and posting to tempt people to stop by.)
Still, the address has been a bit of a doomed location on this block. There was Friterie Belgian Fries, which closed in January 2017 after nearly 18 months in operation.
The previous tenant, Fasta ("Pasta Your Way"), lasted less than six weeks in business. Before that, it was the $1.50 branch of 2 Bros. Pizza, which closed in February 2015.
