Shuttered 3 Months, Cafe Petisco to Return as Vegan Restaurant?
For Cafe Petisco, the collapsed wall in the basement coincided with a Department of Health inspection that ultimately led to its closure. Three months later, the mediterranean restaurant looks to be going vegan.
Public records show that Cafe Petisco was ordered shut after an inspection on March 29 yielded 43 violation points for “evidence of live mice” and “food not protected from contamination.” Inspectors did return for a follow-up a few days later, but a “grade is still pending,” according to the city’s database.
Upon reopening, though, a rebirth. Indeed, all signs point to a complete 180 for the East Broadway longtimer. The most obvious being their official Instagram account, which was closed and migrated to a new handle – Petisco Vegano.
Ownership has not immediately returned our request for comment, though.
Meanwhile, owner Anat Sror is involved in the new Israeli bakery on Division Street by former Breads chef Adir Michali.
