Barnyard Cheese 'closed until further notice' on Avenue C



Barnyard Cheese Shop at 149 Avenue C between East Ninth Street and East 10th Street has shut its doors for now.

There's a note on the door, which offers the following explanation:

"Barnyard will be closed until further notice while we work in conjunction with our fellow building residents to make much needed improvements in order to be able to continue to bring you the quality food, service, and comfort that you deserve and that we strive to bring you every day.

"It is our hope that this closing will be brief and that we will be back and better than ever very soon."

Not sure what to make of that... aside from reading between the lines. As for improvements, there's nothing on file with the DOB to indicate any major construction project.

Barnyard, which sells a variety of meats and cheeses and soups and sandwiches, opened in November 2007.

Thanks to Zack Mack for the photo!

At those prices for cheese, I can see why they might want to regroup.

I went there when they were first open, and they were jerks. Been calling the place Cheese Dicks ever since and taking my business elsewhere. I'm surprised they lasted this long.

I'm a big fan of their cheeses and their sandwiches. Staff has always been great to me.

The guy who manages this place, Alex, is super nice and super friendly. The other people who work here are also nice, although maybe not the world's most talkative individuals. The food is always fresh, although it is a bit on the pricy side. Low-key sandwich places with a street-facing window seating seems to be disappearing in the in the neighborhood, so I'm hoping this place comes back.
