INWOOD — City health inspectors temporarily closed down popular Chinese food restaurant One Family last week after finding evidence of roaches, mice, inadequate "personal cleanliness" and improperly refrigerated food, according to the Department of Health's website.
The restaurant, located at 52A Sherman Ave., between Thayer Street and Dongan Place, had its metal gates firlmly closed over the weekend after health inspectors slapped it with 50 health violation points.
Violations also included evidence of improper pesticide use and storage, and problematic plumbing and/or a broken sewage disposal system. The restaurant was forced to close on Thursday.
The owners were unavailable for comment, and an outgoing voicemail message at the restaurant did not address the health-related closure.
“Because of the renovation the store will be closed today,” the message said. “We will be open again next week. Sorry for any inconvenience.”
