Despite an employee’s prediction that mouse-infested Little Owl wouldn’t reopen till this week, Diner’s Journal has it that the restaurant was serving Friday night. It seems chef-owner Joey Campanaro got the Health Department in Friday afternoon, which, after a three-hour rodent hunt turned up nothing, gave the green light on opening back up that night. The eatery currently has a “Grade Pending” sign in the window, which will remain until a surprise DOH inspection deems the place squeak-y clean. DJ is also reporting that although Little Owl closed for two days, Campanaro is giving employees full pay. Now that’s decent. [Diner’s Journal/NYT]
