It seems so! The Flatiron location of Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill may be closing or relocating in the near future. Zagat reports that the 4,000-square-foot ground floor of 102 Fifth Avenue is currently listed with Prudential Douglas Elliman. Other than the listing, no other details, such as the fate of the 21-year-old restaurant, are known at this time. “Through the soaring kitchen window, you can watch Flay and team in full frenzy,” wrote Gael Greene for New York, of the big-bangish early days that inspired a gazillion copycat ancho chile sauces, “sprinkling confetti of red pepper and bright green chive, scattering matchsticks of jicama.” We reached out to Flay’s reps and will let you know when we hear more.

Update: Flay says they’re renegotiating the lease.
