‘BYGGYZ’ will Stay Open with Reduced Hours While Searching for Investors
In a somewhat surprising reversal, Dewey Durfresne announced yesterday that BYGGYZ is not permanently closed, after all. Instead, its hours will be severely reduced.
The over-priced sandwich shop was planning to shutter this Sunday after less than a year on Clinton Street (south of Stanton). Not anymore, though. Grub St noted yesterday that the plan now is to keep the space as a “weekend pop-up” until Dufresne reportedly decides on next steps. It’ll stay closed during the week and reopen Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 8pm.
Regardless, asking north of $12 for a specialty sandwich doesn’t seem sustainable on this part of Clinton Street.
In the meanime, store manager and partner Rachael Carron told the publication that BYGGYZ is seeking investors. Dufresne will continue to serve these sandwiches at Smorgasburg in East River Park.
