DOH closes Friend House (again?) on Third Avenue

In late August, the DOH temporarily closed Friend House, the Asian bistro on Third Avenue at 13th Street. They reopened, or so I thought.

In any event, per the DOH website, Friend House has 83 violation points dated Thursday. Among the worst of the violations:

• Evidence of mice or live mice present in facility's food and/or non-food areas.
• Filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas. Filth flies include house flies, little house flies, blow flies, bottle flies and flesh flies. Food/refuse/sewage-associated flies include fruit flies, drain flies and Phorid flies.
• Personal cleanliness inadequate. Outer garment soiled with possible contaminant. Effective hair restraint not worn in an area where food is prepared.

How about they just close for having mediocre food?

They were taking delivery orders last night per seamless, sweetening their deal with instant 20% off coupons... Who runs this place? Fu Sushi? Actually, I guess we know the answer to that question: mice, flies, and filth
