L&L Hawaiian Allowed To Reopen After DOH Closure

Fans of L&L Hawaiian BBQ on Fulton (btw. Gold & Cliff) may have been a little down at the end of last week as it looks like the Department of Health shut down the plate lunch and Spam musubi purveyor after it got 54 violation points (including the ever popular “live roaches present”) during an inspection on October 12. Lunch’er Jodie wrote in with following disheartening news:

I noticed that it was closed during  it’s usual operating hours on Seamless, so I went to check out the restaurant in person and BAM, there was a notice on the door that the health department had shut it down. Creepy/unsettling detail: I had eaten there just the night before.

According to the DOH site, they were re-inspected on Friday and are allowed to reopen, but will you all be lining up for their gut-bomb lunches?

Letter Grade Spotting Has Started In The FiDi

I doubt anyone who got a C would do this, but I spotted the above signboard outside of The Diner on Nassau St. (btw. John & Fulton). In addition to knowing that they scored an A from the Department of Health (the actual placard was hung in the window), you can also rest assured that they have a tuna salad sandwich as a lunch special for the day! Nothing like multi-tasking. As other sites have pointed out, since the letter grades have been given out at the end of July, about 80%  of the 250 inspected have gotten an A or B.
