Great NY Noodletown, a go-to spot for Cantonese roast meats and noodle soups, is back open today.
The popular destination at 28 Bowery had been shut down by the city’s Department of Health after receiving 116 violation points in an inspection Jan. 12. The restaurant was inspected again on Friday and received only 3 violation points. There’s a “Grade Pending,” sign on the window this afternoon, meaning the owners (and loyal customers) won’t be able to breath easier for a little while.
The dining room looked pretty busy at around 4 p.m. today.
One of the most popular restaurants in Chinatown, Great NY Noodletown, was closed by city health inspectors earlier this month. Eater first reported on the closure yesterday afternoon.
The Department of Health made the move after a Jan. 12 inspection in which the longtime Cantonese spot at 28 Bowery racked up 116 violation points. The inspection noted evidence of mice, roaches and potential food contamination issues. The restaurant’s most recent inspection prior to this month took place in August of last year, when only 25 violation points were recorded.
When we walked past NY Noodletown last night, people were working inside but the drop-down gate was mostly closed. There was no answer last night when we tried to contact the restaurant by telephone.
UPDATE 1/21/2018 The restaurant is back open after a Friday re-inspection. NY Noodletown recorded only 3 points in the new inspection.
