The Sunburnt Cow, the drunk brunch hotspot at 137 Avenue C near East Ninth Street, will close at the end of April.
Here is the message via the Cow's Facebook page:
Following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy we are sadly calling it a night…But let's make it a night to remember!!
Friday 25th, Saturday April 26th and Sunday April 27th.
DJ's all weekend, Come KISS the Cow Goodbye.
Almost exactly one year ago a listing for the place appeared on the Misrahi Realty website.
On March 28, the city OK'd a plan to renovate the entire building.
Per the DOB's all-cap job description: "INTERIOR RENOVATION OF FIVE STORY MIXED USE BUILDING AMENDED CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY WILL BE OBTAINED." The DOB lists Ramy Issac, no stranger to the East Village, as the architect of record.
In March 2013, the DOH temporarily closed the "Endless Brunch" hotspot after finding 56 violation points. Owner Heathe St. Clair "blamed the continuing recovery from Hurricane Sandy for his restaurant's dismal inspection report," according to DNAinfo.
The Moolife Group, owners of the Sunburnt Cow, closed Bondi Road in September 2012 after a six-year run on Rivington Street, as BoweryBoogie reported.
