As EV Grieve live-blogs the reinspection of the shuttered Ray’s Candy Store and Neither More Nor Less worries that Ray is getting hit hard by the “soulless ravenous beast of a city administration” (that would be the Health Department), we’ve gotten word that a couple of days ago, the Eighth Avenue location of Mexican joint Mary Ann’s was shuttered owing to the vermin and food-protection violations enumerated in the inspection report below. An employee at the restaurant says they’re renovating and hope to reopen for dinner on Monday.
