Yesterday, people noticed that the DOH has closed Mission Chinese Food. The restaurant posted a sign saying a basement leak was to blame, but the full DOH report — which you can get to here — has more: A plumbing-related citation is noted on the October 1 inspection report, along with a slew of other critical violations for cold-holding and sanitizing, improperly labeled chemicals, plus an open bait trap for the aforementioned mice. A DOH rep told Gothamist, "the restaurant had a severe mouse infestation that required professional pest control services." [Eater NY, Gothamist]
