La Barra Abandons 250 Broome Street
The last couple months have been particularly rough for the twin storefronts at 250 Broome Street. Miss 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.
