Here at 104 Avenue B near Seventh Street, SOS Chefs has been supplying chefs and foodies alike with with everything from almond syrup to truffle oil to Turkish figs. (New York magazine once noted that Momofuku’s David Chang and Prune’s Gabrielle Hamilton are fans.)
However, as the sign on the door to customers notes, SOS is closing up its shop.
Per the sign: "We are going to take some time to discover new things, and to see what the next steps may be in the evolution of SOS Chefs."
One reader who recently stopped in said that the owners wanted to spend more time with their family. No word on where the Guard Cat will relocate.
