A reader writes in with some unhappy intel:
I walked past Veniero’s around 4:30 p.m. today and it had a “closed due to health code violations” sign on the entrance door. Two women (owners?) were also putting up a handwritten sign in an adjacent window regarding the closure, something to the effect of, “After 114 years … we are closing due to renovations that created the health code issues.” The women putting up the sign said they were addressing the problem, to check back soon and that they would be reopening again.
Eater has a photo from the scene. Here’s hoping the matter is resolved in time for our mother to get an Italian-style cheesecake for Mom’s Day.
