Barnyard Cheese Shop returns; Brix Wines moves a storefront away

Barnyard Cheese Shop reopened on Saturday at 168 Avenue B between 10th Street and 11th Street... (thanks to Vinny & O for the photos and Laura for the tip!)...
The popular cheesemonger and sandwich shop closed on Feb. 19 for a temporary break

In an email at the time, owner Beatriz Gutierrez told me that it had "been an exhausting year." She continued: "[B]ut I know that a lot of folks look to us, literally, for their daily bread and I knew it would be a shock to see us closed. But I also know that closing Barnyard, for at least now, was the right thing to do. I am working hard at finding the best way to reopen and also stay safe, relevant, and of course, solvent as a business at a time when so many other businesses are not able to do so."

Meanwhile, Brix Wines, her sister shop right next door, moved one storefront to the north...
... to the former Rue St. Denis space...
Barnyard is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Brix Wines is open daily from noon to 8 p.m., to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. 

Thanks to Steven for the second Brix shot...

From the tone of the closing announcement, I really thought they might not come back. I'm glad.
