New Yorkers are scratching their heads over the fate of a popular Greenwich Village restaurant.

The windows of Gray's Papaya on Eighth Street and Sixth Avenue, known for its hot dogs, are covered with paper.

People walking past were surprised by the scene and were disappointed that it wasn't open.

There weren't any signs up explaining the situation, so it's not clear whether it's closed for good.

"It's a little sad. It seemed like an establishment, an institution around here," said one person. "There's always people in here, I'm not sure why they had to shut down."

NY1 reached out to the owners for comment but has not yet heard back.

Another Gray's Papaya on Broadway and 72nd Street remains open.
