DOH Shutters ‘Sweet Chick’ on Ludlow Street
For the third time this year, Sweet Chick on Ludlow Street has fallen victim to a city-mandated closure. Department of Health inspectors showed up to the restaurant last week (December 19) and tallied a list of 86 violation points.
Citation was rather serious – vermin on-premise and food prep areas tainted by “sewage or liquid waste.”
It’s certainly been a rough year for Sweet Chick’s maiden location, which opened at 178 Ludlow Street in 2014 (formerly Max Fish). Back in January, Department of Buildings forced the business down due to alleged “gas use without authorization.” That closure lasted about four months (and a gas-less Sweet Chicka experiment). They returned to the fold at the beginning of May, but suffered an interagency sting (i.e. bureaucratic MARCH raid) one month later.
