DOH temporarily closes Nino's

Late Friday afternoon, we noted that Nino's 2.0 had abruptly closed once again on Avenue A and St. Mark's Place... at the time, we didn't spot the DOH's calling sticker...

The DOH inspector found 86 violation points during a visit on Wednesday. The top 4 listed violations:

1) Hot food item not held at or above 140º F.
2) Cold food item held above 41º F (smoked fish and reduced oxygen packaged foods above 38 ºF) except during necessary preparation.
3) Food Protection Certificate not held by supervisor of food operations.
4) Appropriately scaled metal stem-type thermometer or thermocouple not provided or used to evaluate temperatures of potentially hazardous foods during cooking, cooling, reheating and holding.

Also, as we pointed out in that same post, the 2 Bros. supreme slice joint on St. Mark's Place had reopened... They were closed for renovations following a fire in a nearby apartment in September.
