Crêpes for First Avenue?

The plywood is down at 135 First Ave. near St. Mark's Place... a tipster says that the space will be a cafe specializing in crêpes (and they look to have a to-go window) ... the address was previously home to Iconic Hand Rolls, which closed in April after 10 months in business.

Iconic Hand Rolls has apparently closed

Bill the Libertarian Anarchist noted that workers were clearing out Iconic Hand Rolls last night on First Avenue near St. Mark's Place... the temaki shop opened last June here ... and this morning, the space is completely empty. Perhaps they're just remodeling.

No mention of a closure or renovation on the Iconic website or on their usually active Facebook or Twitter accounts. The phone number is not in service at this time.

The restaurant recently launched a campaign in which 50 Iconic logo stickers were placed within a five-block radius of the store. Per Washington Square News: "Clues on the whereabouts of the stickers will be posted on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Those who find the stickers can use them to redeem a free temaki roll, a cone-shaped and hand-rolled sushi, from the store."

And there were these new ads, like this one on St. Mark's Place...

Iconic Hand Rolls had some tough luck at the outset — their AC conked out and they had to remain closed during their first weekend in business. And there was that plywood mischief too.
