UWS Greek restaurant Kefi (505 Columbus, between 84th & 85th) is the latest neighborhood eatery to be temporarily closed by the health department.
The restaurant had previously earned an “A” grade after their most recent inspection in April.
They were closed on Monday and reopened for business today.
Kefi is a well-known, well-liked, and popular restaurant — its Yelp rating averages 4-stars from 630+ reviewers.
I’ve been there several times and have always had a good experience — I’ll definitely be going back at some point in the future.
I don’t put a lot of stock in the DOH grading system, but I know many readers do. So, just FYI.
