YORKVILLE — A creperie and wine bar is set to replace a shuttered frozen yogurt buffet on Second Ave near 82nd Street.
Crepe Corner & Wine Bar has announced plans to move into 1585 Second Ave., replacing Yogo Swirl — a self-service frozen yogurt buffet which shuttered approximately a month ago, neighbors said.
Signs on the window show photos of both savory crepes and sweet dessert crepes.
The building's owner and superintendent could not immediately provide additional details about the forthcoming restaurant. The restaurant owner could not be reached for comment.
Yogo Swirl was one of at least a dozen yogurt buffets in Yorkville, according to Yelp.com, and one of three in just a few block-radius. A 16 Handles is located at 1659 Second Ave. and a Pinkberry stands at 1577 Second Ave.
Still, Dwayne Gregory, 53, of Riverdale said he was hankering for Yogo Swirl's cool, sweet treats.
"Could you tell them to come back? I'm dying for some yogurt," Gregory said, insisting that he specifically wanted Yogo Swirl. "Now, I've got to drink beer instead."
