Two Roosevelt Avenue restaurants have been shut down by the Health Department.

Namaste Chautari Restaurant, an Indian establishment located at 74-15 Roosevelt Ave., was shut down on Aug. 4.

The restaurant received a handful of violations, including evidence of mice and roaches, as well as the food not being protected from contaminants while in storage, according to Health Department records.

The second establishment is Apple Juice, a juice and smoothie shop located at 90-22 Roosevelt Ave., which was shut down on July 27. It received a number of violations including keeping cold food items above 41º F, and for not having a toilet facility for employees or patrons when required.

It also received violations for lacking the facilities needed to wash, rinse and sanitize kitchen equipment.

It is unclear if the restaurants have reopened at this time.
