The Sunburnt Cow Is Struggling to Reopen Full-Time

Although the restaurant has been open on weekends for brunch service, the Sunburnt Cow cannot serve dinner because gas and electrical issues have crippled the restaurant. Manager Matilda Boland tells the Local East Village that Con Edison was forced to shut down gas service to the Avenue C address when post-Sandy cleanup revealed safety concerns. The restaurant is slowly replacing its electrical system, which also needed an overhaul after the storm. Because the bar is no longer generating significant income, Boland can only tell the Local that she hopes to be up and running at full capacity “by the time it’s warm out.” [Local East Village/NYT]
