The days appear to be numbered for The Sunburnt Cow, the Australian restaurant on Avenue C run by the Moo Life Group. The restaurant was due to get "major renovations" last summer, then took a big hit in Hurricane Sandy in the fall (like much of Avenue C) and got shut down briefly by the Department of Health back in March after it racked up 56 points in an inspection. Now, EV Grieve notices that the restaurant's space has been put up for sale.
Given the recent spate of troubles there, it sounds like owner Heathe St. Clair might be looking to get out sooner rather than later. The space, at a listed price of $5,400, is available immediately. (And as Grieve notes, it's currently only open for brunch on the weekends and for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights.) Another Moo Life restaurant, Bondi Road, shuttered in October to make way for a new brick-and-mortar location of Calexico.
