Pare che molti ristoranti di New York siano infestati dai ratti! Solo nelle ultime 3 settimane 100 ristoranti sono stati chiusi per violazione delle norme igeniche!
Vi posto l'articolo tratto da AM New York

NEW YORK -- Restaurant managers have always cringed a little at the sight of a city health inspector, a clipboard-carrying official with the power to break a restaurant's reputation with the click of a pen.

Lately, they've had reason to be downright terrified.

In recent days, New York's small corps of inspectors has been delivering a thumping to local eateries.

Nearly 100 restaurants have been shuttered for health code violations in the past three weeks _ a shocking total considering that inspectors closed only 558 restaurants in all of 2006.

Scores more have been allowed to stay open, but hammered with citations that will lead to big fines.

Among the unlucky was the trendy Coffee Shop in Union Square.

An inspector who arrived March 7 spent hours picking through the place, then ordered it shut for violations ranging from a problem with a sink to inadequate refrigeration.

The restaurant, once featured on HBO's "Sex and the City," addressed all the violations and reopened Tuesday. But part-owner Charles Milite said he was convinced he was among a growing number of establishments caught up in an unprecedented crackdown.

"I was as confident as could be when they came in. To have our doors padlocked was absolutely devastating," he said. "I'm still just reeling from the whole thing. This is new territory."

Health department records show that inspectors began taking a sharper-than-usual look at restaurants after city officials were embarrassed by a small-scale scandal involving one Manhattan fast-food restaurant and a family of rats.

On Feb. 23, television camera crews filmed what appeared to be more than a dozen rats cavorting in the after-hours darkness of a KFC/Taco Bell in Greenwich Village. Video of the stomach-turning scene circulated on the Web.

The Department of Health quickly ordered the place shut down, but also revealed that an inspector had improperly given the infested restaurant a passing grade just a day earlier.

The inspector was suspended from field duty, and her colleagues have been on a tear ever since.

The city's deputy commissioner for environmental health, Jessica Leighton, insisted that there is no formal crackdown under way.

"We did not tell them to change their behaviors or work in any way," she said of the inspectors.

But she acknowledged that violations had increased significantly in recent weeks, and she offered that it was possible that media scrutiny had made the inspectors "more focused" on the job.

Leighton insisted, though, that the majority of inspections are taking place just as they were before the scandal and there was no need to tell the inspectors to back off.

"At this point, until we complete our investigation, we aren't making any change in policy," she said.

The health department was not able to immediately provide information on the number of restaurants that have failed an inspection since Feb. 23, but its online database of inspection data provided some revealing statistics.

Of the 200 New York City restaurants that scored the worst during their last inspection, a third got that bad mark during a nine-day span that began the day the video of the rats surfaced.

Restaurateurs say they just hope things get back to normal soon.

Ted Vlamis, proprietor of the Vegas Diner in Brooklyn, said he was traumatized when the restaurant failed an inspection and was shut briefly by the city on Feb. 28.

Another health official returned and gave the diner a perfect score during a follow-up inspection two days later. But the damage was done, Vlamis said.

"Have we lost business? Yes. Maybe 30 percent," he said. "I just hope the customers understand what is happening."

Se andate alla pagina dell'articolo
http://www.amny.com/news/local/ny-bc-ny--restaurantinspect0313mar13,0,4501589.story?coll=am-topheadlines

potete anche vedere le foto di queste "simpatiche" pantegane che se ne scorrazzano in giro per un KFC nel Greenwich. (le trovate in slide show). Ci sarebbe anche il video, ma io non riesco a vederlo, non so perchè.
Se guarate poi sotto a slide show, trovate anche "City's restaurant inspection database", con tutte le ispezione che sono state svolte nei vari ristoranti. Trovate una lista di quelli che hanno superato il controllo. Se poi inserite il nome di un ristorante nella casella sotto "search on", troverete la liste delle irregolarità riscontrate in questo!
Perciò occhio a dove si va a mangiare!

Inserisco anche un pezzo di un altro articolo.

Videographer Rafael Garcia looked through the windows of a KFC-Taco Bell restaurant in Greenwich Village on Friday morning and saw 30 to 50 rats clambering over chairs, tables and children's high chairs.

"I looked in the window and seen these rats and said, 'Holy -- -- ,'" said Garcia, 52. "There were enough creatures in that room that they could have devoured a human being. They were hungry mothers. ... It was a frenzy."

Il fatto che chiudano è una bella notizia.
In realta le norme sono piuttosto restrittive,
si puo chiudere perche non vengono rispettate
le regole sulla sicurezza, la conservazione dei
cibi, gli impianti a norma, violazione burocratiche.....
questi locali sono quasi tutti dei fast-food, delis,
bistro che attirano una clientela "cheap" senza
troppe pretese. Tra l'altra spesso in questi posti
lavorano immigrati clandestini che vengono a NY
solo per sbarcare il lunario......è ora di ricacciare
questa gente fuori dalla citta.
E' inutile negarlo dove vivono i bianchi quasi sempre
ci sono condizione di vita accettabili, mentre non si
puo dire lo stesso per le altre etnie!!

I LOVE NY (quella pulita)!!
