Another day, another DOH closing. Wrote yesterday that Cheesy Pizza (Broadway & 100th) was temporarily shuttered. Now comes word that 72nd Street Bagel (130 W. 72nd) is the latest UWS eatery to suffer the wrath of the health department. 72nd Street Bagel had previously earned an “A” during their last graded inspection in September 2012.
Upper West Side stalwart Cheesy Pizza (2640 Broadway, at 100th) is the latest neighborhood spot to be closed by the Health Department.

Cava Wine Bar (185 W. 80th, between Amsterdam & Columbus) is the latest Upper West Side establishment to incur the wrath of the Health Department. DOH ordered the space temporarily closed on Wednesday. The wine bar/restaurant had previously earned an “A” during their last graded inspection in June 2012.
Looks like 3 Star Coffee Shop (541 Columbus, at 86th) got zero stars from the Health Department. The restaurant was recently shuttered by DOH after racking up an impressive (i.e. NOT impressive) 106 violation points. This is the second time in recent months that 3 Star has been ordered closed — DOH also shut them [...]
Good news if you’ve been unable to get your bagel fix the past few days. Absolute Bagels, which was shuttered by the health department last week, reopened today. The store, considered by many to have the best bagels on the Upper West Side, had been closed since Thursday, 1/17.
UPDATE 1/25: M2M has reopened Looks like the health department has been busy on the Upper West Side. Not only did they close Absolute Bagels and Saigon Grill, they also shuttered convenience store M2M (2935 Broadway, between 114th & 115th). The store had previously earned a “B” grade in August.
Posted the other day that popular neighborhood spot Absolute Bagels is temporarily closed and that it might be the result of a failed health department inspection. MUW reader Brian reports that Saigon Grill (620 Amsterdam, between 90th & 91st) was definitely closed by DOH on Wednesday. The restaurant had earned a “B” during its last [...]
UPDATE 1/23: Absolute Bagels (Finally) Reopens UPDATE 1/21: Confirmed — Absolute was closed by DOH. They racked up 73 violation points during an inspection on 1/17, prompting the closure. DOH updated their database over the weekend to confirm the closing was at their hands. Thanks also to MUW reader Harriet, who posted in the comments [...]
So this actually happened last Friday, but between the horrifying nanny stabbing news and the arrival of Sandy, I never got around to posting it. Seems kind of trivial at the moment, but I know some people place a lot of importance on DOH closings: The Starbucks at 2252 Broadway (corner of 81st) recently joined [...]
UWS Greek restaurant Kefi (505 Columbus, between 84th & 85th) is the latest neighborhood eatery to be temporarily closed by the health department.

The Cold Stone Creamery/Tim Hortons Coffee combo at 162 W. 72nd (between Amsterdam & Columbus) is the latest UWS spot to be shuttered by the Department Of Health. They had previously earned an “A” grade during their last DOH inspection in February.
Well here’s a delightful bit of news… In an effort to combat the spread of West Nile Virus, the Department of Health is spraying a huge chunk of the Upper West Side with pesticide. Spraying will take place from 1:00 am to 6:00 am Friday morning (8/31) — i.e. it’s starting late tonight.
UWS restaurant Machiavelli (519 Columbus, at 85th), which opened last September, was recently shuttered by the health department. The restaurant had previously earned an “A” grade after their most recent inspection. (Thanks to MUW reader Johnny Scats for the tip).
UPDATE 8:45 pm: MUW reader @chantalmclaugh reports the restaurant reopened today. Apparently the DOH hasn’t updated their website yet. Looks like Hudson Beach Cafe is the latest neighborhood spot to be closed by the health department. I believe their grade prior to the closing was a “C” (the lowest possible), with enough violation points they [...]
