Health Department Takes Out China Grill

While we cant wait for the Health Departments regulatory rampage to end, let it at least be said that it treats the great and the obscure alike. Jeffrey Chodorows flagship restaurant, China Grill, was closed this afternoon by the DOH for the walk-in refrigerator being warmer than rules permit and a few other ticky-tacky offenses (according to a hastily issued press release). China Grill Management, Chodorows corporation, will no doubt pour out some money and have the place up and running in a couple of days, if not sooner. But Chodo, like everyone else who has felt the whip of the citys clipboard-wielding inspectors, knows whos boss now.
