New York Chinatown legend, Great NY Noodletown, was forced to close on Friday night.
A February inspection turned up evidence of insects, roaches and mice in the Noodletown’s food and/or non-food areas, and, according to Eater NY, pinged the restaurant for its storage of delicious meats that hang behind the counter.
Where the DOH finds fault, Noodletown’s devoted customers find flavor. The 50 violation points from February required a follow-up visit, which apparently didn’t go so well, and the restaurant remains closed. Luckily, the shut down is happening now and not during soft-shell crab season, one of Noodletown’s specialties.
I find fault. Shut them down.
