A tipster points us to the DOH website ... where records show that the city has temporarily closed the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe on East Third Street. According to the DOH, officials closed the cafe on Friday after inspectors found 79 violations points. Among the violations cited: "Sanitized equipment or utensil, including in-use food dispensing utensil, improperly used or stored."
No word of the closure on the Nuyorican Poets Cafe website, though we did spot this via Twitter:
If you are planning on attending one of the many events there this week, then you may just want to call in advance. Cafe info here.
