A sheet of paper taped to the glass door of The Birchwood restaurant in Polish Town states the restaurant is closed for renovations.

“We will be Renovating the Restaurant over the next several weeks!!” reads the notice, which was still posted as of Monday and signed “The Owner.”

Although the sign was posted last month, there’s been little sign of construction at the shuttered site.

Andrea Mayer, ex-wife of the restaurant’s previous owner, James Loo, told the News-Review Monday that the restaurant would undergo “cosmetic” changes that wouldn’t require building permits from Riverhead Town.
