Ah crap! Marion Barry was right! LOL! Hopefully my fav dim sum restaurant will get itself cleaned up and re-open again soon. As much success in business as they were enjoying, I'm surprised to hear about this. We can only suggest that they take a cue from their neighbor, Asian market Jing Jing. Even their bathrooms are cleaner than any we've checked out anywhere else!

They've reopened today (Friday, April 6) according to the health department, so you're good to go, Robert Lee!

Thanks, Venice! How bad could it have really been if the Health Dept. cleared them so quickly?
