Brooklyn Heights: Busy Chef Cover Up -- Stop Work Order

(UPDATE below)
Rumors are flying about what's coming next for the Busy Chef corner of Henry Street in north Brooklyn Heights. Sources say talks with a restaurateur are in progress, at least for the Busy Chef portion of the corner.

Thursday, all three interconnected businesses -- Busy Chef, Blue Pig and Oven -- were covered up with a wooden shed. But sources say that the purpose is for exterior (facade) work being done by the building -- not for the new restaurant/s.

UPDATE: A Stop Work Order has been slapped onto this work for construction without a permit. DOB and here.

They are renovating the interiors and the work permit was pulled by seatts and young, not the building. This shed is just to cover what is going on inside.
