City gives Native Bean a moving gift on Avenue A
A few weeks back we reported that Native Bean is moving after tomorrow from 50 Avenue A to 36 Avenue A.
Several days before closing for the move, the DOH came calling … and found enough violation points to immediately closed the cafe here between East Third Street and East Fourth Street.
The inspection, dated Friday, found 59 violation points. The top two listed violations:
1) Cold food item held above 41º F (smoked fish and reduced oxygen packaged foods above 38 ºF) except during necessary preparation.
2) Food Protection Certificate not held by supervisor of food operations.
Not sure what happens next given that they were ready to move from this space.
Native Bean's new home will be in the former space that Angelina Cafe used before moving across Avenue A.
Previously on EV Grieve:
Space that houses Native Bean on Avenue A is for rent
Native Bean space apparently back on the market
Native Bean will be moving on Avenue A
