City temporarily closes Baoguette on St. Mark's Place

Yesterday, Baoguette Cafe on St. Mark's Place was closed... workers were cleaning up the place...

Now with the gates down, you can spot the DOH stickers...

A handwritten sign says "Sorry we are closed. Need to renew expired permit tomorrow! Hope to open tomorrow."

The expiration date on the document is April 30, 2012.

However, there's more to it than a simple expired permit. According to the DOH website, Baoguette was hit with 80 violation points during an inspection, including evidence of various live things.

Meanwhile, we spotted this under the Baoguette sign out front.. a reminder of the former tenant... Ah, Bamn! (And their website is still live!)

just saw the words, "80 VIOLATION POINTS," and tried to imagine the unimaginable horrors

I love that place, but I most certainly contracted some turbo-bad food poising from them once.
