Punto Rojo looks done for on 1st Avenue
Last month we noted that a homemade restaurant for sale sign was hanging in the front window at Punto Rojo, the reasonably priced bakery-restaurant that serves traditional Colombian food at 221 First Ave. between 13th Street and 14th Street.
Punto Rojo has apparently closed for good. As you can see in the top photo, the signage was recently removed, and the space looks as if it was cleared out.
These actions also coincided with a closure at the hands of the Department of Health on Nov. 12 ...
Inspectors found 86 violations points, including "Food Protection Certificate not held by supervisor of food operations," per public records.
Punto Rojo took over the space from Señor Pollo, which specialized in Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken, in the spring of 2018.
