The Barrel, the tapas bar at 10 Stuyvesant Street adjacent to East Ninth Street, has closed.
EVG reader Christopher Pelham passes along this photo from last night… The sign on the door says, "We have loved getting to know you and serving you these past years! … We will miss all of you."
We didn't hear any reason for this closing. The Barrel stopped its weekday lunch service back in September. There isn't any mention of the closure on The Barrel's social media properties.
As we recall, the owners of Panya next door opened The Barrel five-plus years ago, taking over part of the former Around the Clock space. That 20-year-old diner closed in January 2009.
