NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -

Two of New Albany's best known eateries are shutting down.

The popular Comfy Cow and Feast BBQ are leaving town Wednesday.

"I've always loved the food here, so I'm pretty disappointed they're closing," said Jacob Finn, a customer of Feast BBQ.

"Feast BBQ outgrew our space in New Albany the day we opened the doors, on July 4, 2012," owner Ryan Rogers said.

An employee tells WDRB the Feast BBQ restaurant in New Albany is roughly three times smaller than Feast BBQ in NuLu, which makes it difficult to operate. The people who work there have been offered a job at the company’s other restaurants.

Feast BBQ is on Main Street, and just around the corner on Market Street, Comfy Cow will close its doors Wednesday, too.

The New Albany scoop shop has been a local sweet spot for a long time.

"I was sad!" said customer Erin Bready. "We come here a lot because it's the closest really super good ice cream."

The founders sold it to Louisville lawyer and entrepreneur, Chip Hamm.

"We are consolidating it with our store in Jeffersonville," Hamm said. "Among some other factors, the Jeffersonville has a large area for private events and parties."

That location will re-open April 2. There are now a half-dozen locations in the Louisville area. Hamm says there are no plans to open -- or close -- other locations in the near future.

Another Feast BBQ restaurant is preparing to open in Jeffersontown.
