1) Park Slope: One of the most notoriously doomed restaurant spaces in the city has just taken its latest victim. Multiple tipsters report that Playa, a Pan-Latin spot on 5th Avenue and President Street, closed over the weekend. In just the last three years the space has been home to Playa, Lookout Hill, Biscuit BBQ, and Night & Day. Before that it was fusion join Bibi's. [ShutterWire]

2) Upper East Side: A tipster emails in to reveal and a Chowhound post confirms that the Upper East Side branch of Wu Liang Ye on 86th and Lexington has closed. [ShutterWire]

3) Park Slope: A friend of Eater notes that Cypress Avenue in Park Slope is undergoing renovations. Owned by the same people who run Black Sheep Pub, it used to be a tapas bar. [ShutterWire]
