Public Health performed a field investigation of the restaurant on April 16, which resulted in temporary closure of the facility. The decision to suspend the restaurant's permit was based on observation of repeat improper food handling practices. The restaurant was allowed to reopen on April 14. However, a second closure occurred after reinspection on April 26 because of continued repeat violations. The establishment was reopened on April 27, 2016.
