Yesterday, Veniero’s was closed by the Department of Health and a sign went up saying the 114-year-old patisserie was renovating. Today, the skeletons have come out of the closet — or the mouse droppings have come out of the chocolate box. According to a report that Eater has obtained, “over 300 mice droppings were found in six separate areas of the café. Two dead mice were found, live roaches were observed, and mice droppings were found in a 10 lb box of chocolate.” Mama mia! Better double-check that cake you bought for Mom’s Day.
