La Barra Abandons 250 Broome Street

Posted on: January 11th, 2011 at 6:40 am by

The last couple months have been particularly rough for the twin storefronts at 250 Broome StreetMiss Lonelyhearts was first to vacate the premises in mid-December after thirteen months in business.  A window note to customers explained that owner Jenny Yuen would be traveling and looking to open some pop-up shops in the near future. It’s still there.

And now today brings word that the two-year-old La Barra Cevicheria just abandoned ship.  The tiny-table Mexican spot closed rather suddenly.  There was no announcement in the windows, on their Facebook page, nor website.  Just a leasing sign in the window which says it all. Last night, one light bulb illuminated the empty space.  There’s nothing left but a bar and some exposed brick.  Game over.

La Barra first opened at 250 Broome in December 2008, mere weeks after the LES Sandwicherie moved and merged with sister restaurant Kuta.
