Dessert Truck Works at 6 Clinton Axed by Department of Health

Posted on: December 6th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Truck-to-store phenom Dessert Truck Works, which opened at 6 Clinton Street almost two years ago, just suffered a stroke of bad luck.

Boogie reader GVE informs us that the boutique bakery was felled by the Department of Health on Friday after racking up a healthy 38 violation points during inspection. Gates remain shuttered with no sign of those super-sticky yellow notices.  The DOH cites the following as cause for closure:

Violation points: 38

Sanitary Violations

  1. Evidence of mice or live mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas.
  2. Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
  3. Pesticide use not in accordance with label or applicable laws. Prohibited chemical used/stored. Open bait station used.
  4. Non-food contact surface improperly constructed. Unacceptable material used. Non-food contact surface or equipment improperly maintained and/or not properly sealed, raised, spaced or movable to allow accessibility for cleaning on all sides, above and underneath the unit.

Yikes. At least it’s not chilled monkey brains…

Classic El Sombrero Signage Probably Won’t Return to the Exterior of 108 Stanton Street

Hate to burst the bubble, but the wonderfully classic El Sombrero signage will not return to the exterior of 108 Stanton Street when the reboot launches. The marquee is now a rustic wood flavor with evenly-spaced lighting. Before you reach for that tissue, though, take comfort in the knowledge that the faded relic hasn’t altogether […]
