According to a report from, “It was about lunchtime yesterday when Eugene Kaplun stood in front of a pizzeria in Brooklyn, not believing what he was seeing. He read the yellow sign. He read the brown sign. Neither was a menu.”

The report said, “The yellow sign, a notice of closing, had been posted by the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The brown sign was a more personal note from the management about why it was closed.”

According to the article, “The restaurant in question was Di Fara Pizza, a place in Midwood that is frequently mentioned in arguments about who serves New York’s best slices. Hours-long waits to get in are not uncommon. So finding its doors closed, as they have been since Monday, has been a source of dismay for many would-be diners.”
