Barnyard Cheese Closed Until Further Notice

Posted on | August 6, 2015 | No Comments

BarnyardI passed by Barnyard on Avenue C today and the place is pretty much cleared out with a sign (dated August 2nd) on the door.  It seems that they are closed until further notice while work is done on the building.  There is nothing stated on their Twitter or Facebook accounts, but the note says ‘It is our hope that this closing will be brief‘.

Update: They should be open by the weekend.

A look Inside Pardon My French

Pardon My French Exterior
Pardon My French, formerly Casimir, has opened on Avenue B with a completely renovated bar in the previously under-used side room.  No word on the menu as yet, but it seems that that have taken a turn away from traditional French fare (see this NYPost article), as well as a revamped cocktail list.  I’ll admit that the place looks pretty great.
