NYC Restaurants Ordered Closed July 22 - 27 | Park Slope, NY Patch

NEW YORK — Filth flies, vermin and unwashed hands — restaurants across the city have dirty secrets they'd rather not share. But New York City's Health Department is watching.

Every year, inspectors arrive unannounced at more than 25,000 restaurants to examine health and safety standards.

Most eateries pass inspections, but some fall short of the city's standards, accruing violation points for everything from broken light bulbs to "public health hazards," like vermin and failure to follow food safety protocols.

Restaurants hit with non-food-safety violations might get a fine or a lower letter grade, with zero to 13 points warranting an 'A' and violations totaling 28 points or more earning a 'C' (this system is criticized for its efficacy by some gourmands).

Public health hazards that can't be resolved on the spot, like a mouse or fly infestation, pose a bigger issue: immediate closure.

At least several restaurants citywide meet that fate every week. During the last seven days that list includes a diner located inside an NYC hospital and a takeout spot in north Brooklyn.

Here's all the eateries that the Department of Health closed down since July 22, 2022:

Al Horno Lean Mexican Kitchen (1089 2nd Ave): 50 violation points

Deluxe Green Bo (66 Bayard St): 66 violation points

Dunkin' (316 W 34th St): 50 violation points

Moonstruck at Bellevue Hospital Center (462 1st Ave): 82 violation points

Pippali (129 E 27th St): 72 violation points

Crown Fried Chicken And Pizza Shop (407 Saratoga Ave): 81 violation points

Dannee Thai (433 DeKalb Ave): 58 violation points

"Tajmahal Resturant" (473 McDonald Ave): 78 violation points

The Red Doors (1205 Surf Ave): 61 violation points

Yang No 1 Asian (109 S Portland Ave): 78 violation points

El Fogon Costeno (10912 Northern Blvd): 63 violation points
