The Little Italy Pinkberry outpost closed its doors for the last time more than a year ago. It was no swan song – fire killed the fro-yo joint in January 2013, and it spent eighteen months rebounding for the ultimately-short-lived return.

Now, after an extended period rotting in plain sight, 41 Spring Street is returning to the retail fold with a new occupant. Something kitschy-sounding, too. The French Cheese Board, a “studio devoted to all things French cheese.” In fact, the events brand operated on 39th Street for about a year, until this past fall. It’s game is periodic pop-ups, all involving the sampling and appreciation of international cheeses. Cooking classes are also part of the program.

The French Cheese Board will debut at 41 Spring Street sometime in mid-March. Requisite permits are filed with the Department of Buildings to build out and re-wire the doomed space.
