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.
