Health scare: IG-Fit closes on 14th Street

So much for making your 2023 fitness goals any easier. 

The IG-Fit Health Club closed at the end of 2022 at 244 E. 14th St. near Second Avenue.

A sign on the door for IG-Fit members states that the gym lost its leases after a "protracted litigation with our landlord originating from COVID-mandated closure." (There isn't any mention of the closure on the gym's website or Instagram account.)
In a sliver of a silver lining, management apparently struck a deal with GYM NYC at 155 E. Third St. just east of Avenue A for IG-Fit members to "immediately continue your fitness routine." 

And "for those who work or live further north, we also made arrangements with Synergy Fitness" at 1781 Second Ave., which is pretty far north of here at 96th Street.

Los Tacos NYC has apparently closed on 7th Street

The gate has been down recently at Los Tacos NYC, 117 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.

There's a handwritten "I'm sorry. We are closed. See you later." sign on the door. Google now lists them permanently closed; the phone goes to a voice mailbox that was never set up. And they are no longer on Seamless. We reached out for more info.

The well-reviewed taqueria opened in October 2020... operated by Brandon Pena and Sam Sepulveda, the owners of the 787 coffee brand with a shop on the same block.

Reader report: Tarallucci e Vino has closed

After more than 20 years on the NW corner of 10th Street and First Avenue, Tarallucci e Vino has shut its doors. 

Workers were spotted clearing out the space yesterday. A worker confirmed that Sunday was the last day in business for the all-day cafe-restaurant ...
We reached out for more information. 

The other locations (including the UWS, NoMad and Union Square) remain open. 

Tarallucci e Vino owner Luca Di Pietro, his wife Kate and daughter Isabella launched the Feed the Frontlines NYC initiative at the start of the pandemic to feed New Yorkers in need and help restaurant workers stay employed.

Root & Bone shutters after 8 years in the East Village

Root & Bone closed after brunch service on Sunday... bringing an end to eight years at 200 E. Third St. just west of Avenue B. 

Per an Instagram post
After 8 years in the East Village, we have made the incredibly difficult and heartbreaking decision to close our doors. ... We are so grateful for all the wonderful people that have joined us, the friends we have made, and the family we have forged with our amazing, funny, and weird staff. 
"Top Chef" veterans Janine Booth and Jeff McInnis opened the restaurant specializing in Southern cuisine in early 2014... they later expanded the brand, with a pop-up in Puerto Rico and an outpost in South Miami in 2019. That location remains open... as does their Stiltsville Fish Bar in Miami Beach. 

This EV address was previously home to Mama's Food Shop, which closed in July 2012 after 15 years. Heart 'n Soul tried the space briefly before Root & Bone.

Bagel Boss has closed on 14th Street

The Bagel Boss at 238 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue apparently won't be reopening. 

The address has been removed from the Bagel Boss website, and Google lists them as "permanently closed." 

This comes after a temporary closure last October. At the time, BB management told us, "The location is temporarily closed due to gas and electric problems. We hope to open back up before the end of December!" The outpost never reopened, and it eventually showed up on real-estate listings

On Saturday, a reader saw the gate open for the first time in months ... and the interior mainly looked cleaned out...
Bagel Boss had only just opened here last July

The company, founded in 1975, has 14 locations in NYC and on Long Island. An outpost at 55 E. Houston St. (at Mott) also debuted last year. The store at 263 First Ave. remains in business.

Coddiwomple makes closure permanent

Photos by Steven 

The Coddiwomple outpost is now officially closed at 213 First Ave. between 12th Street and 13th Street. 

The quick-serve sandwich shop had not been open for several weeks... and the closure sign arrived over the weekend...
Coddiwomple just debuted here in mid-January... the third location for the brand with the tagline: "Travel By Sandwich™️ Internationally inspired sandwiches made with local ingredients."

The other two locations appear to be closed as well.

New Swan Valet Cleaners is closing on 3rd Street

New Swan Cleaners is closing at 199 E. Third St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.

March 29 is the last day.
The owner told EVG contributor Stacie Joy that his lease is up and, at age 66, he decided to retire. He said he will miss all his customers. 

The dry-cleaning business was hard hit during the pandemic. However, we have seen several new shops open in recent months in the neighborhood.

Ramen Setagaya's St. Mark's Place location looking very closed

Photos by Steven

The St. Mark's Place branch of the Japanese chain Ramen Setagaya has apparently closed.

The space has been empty for several weeks... 
This branch at 34 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue is no longer posted on the website... and Google lists them as permanently closed...
The affordable ramen spot got its East Village start in 2007 around the corner on Second Avenue before relocating here. 

This closure comes after the arrival of a for-rent sign on the space earlier this year...
