Closings: Yifang Taiwan Fruit Tea, Wild Mirrors

After nearly four years at 33 St. Mark's Place, it appears the Yi Fang Taiwan Fruit Tea shop here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue has closed. (Thanks to Steven for the photo.)

The shop has been dark in recent weeks, and the location is no longer on the Yi Fang website. (The site now only lists the Flushing outpost.)

The chainlet took over the space from CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice, the Taiwan-based chain that closed in late May 2019 after nearly five and a half years in business.

This space here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue was Rockit Scientist Records until the spring of 2012. There was also, for a sec, Iris Cafe.

Meanwhile, multiple readers have pointed out that the gate has been down at Wild Mirrors, 95 Second Ave., for at least six weeks...
The quick-serve restaurant, offering "healthier options of your favorite food" (burgers! wings!), opened this past November here between Fifth Street and Sixth Street. 

There's no mention of a closure on their website or Instagram account, which hasn't been updated since December. The website mentions that a liquor license is "coming soon."

The space was home for years to Thailand Cafe, which went dark in the summer of 2020.
