Sous vide is not for amateurs; NYC shuts Fatty ‘Cue after it gets 115 violation points

Fatty ‘Cue, an apparently popular Asian barbecue restaurant in Brooklyn, has been shut down by the city health department after it rang up 115 violation points in an inspection on Monday. (You need less than 14 points to get an A, less than 28 to get a B.)

According to The New York Times, some of the violations were due to improper sous vide and home canning procedures. But the restaurant was also cited for having evidence of rats and mice. The report also cited “hand washing facility not provided in or near food preparation area and toilet room. Hot and cold running water at adequate pressure to enable cleanliness of employees not provided at facility. Soap and an acceptable hand-drying device not provided.”

Also, food was “not protected from potential source of contamination during storage, preparation, transportation, display or service” during the inspection.

Note: Fatty ‘Cue reopened after passing inspection Thursday afternoon.
