Neighborhood juice store temporarily closed by Health Dept.


Jan. 13, 2017 Staff Report

A small juice and smoothie shop in Jackson Heights was temporarily shut down by the Health Department this week.

Viva Feliz 365, a small shop at 35-66 93rd Street, was closed by the Health Department for the presence of live roaches and mice on the premises.

The juice shop racked up 33 violation points during the inspection on Tuesday, for vermin on the premises and not being vermin-proof.

The Health Department scores inspections and gives out letter grades to restaurants based on a points system. Any restaurant that receives between zero and 13 points receives an A grade, any receiving between 14 and 27 points gets a B grade, and any with 28 or more points gets a C grade. Each point value is assigned based on the size and scale of the violation.

If any violations are especially bad, the restaurant is shut down until it gets its score back under 28 violation points, at which point it can be inspected again and reopen.
