ROGERS PARK — Hana restaurant, a sushi joint at 6803 N. Sheridan Road, plans to reopen next week after the city shut it down for health violations in early April, its owner said.
An inspection on April 1 found several violations, including 50 mouse droppings under the front counter and five live cockroaches under a dishwasher, according to a city inspector's report.
The inspector also found unclean surfaces, improperly stored food containers and leaky plumbing, among other issues, according to the report.
Susan Choe, who was inside the restaurant this week, said she owned Hana with her husband. The store recently was remodeled and placed under new management.
Choe said the restaurant's license was suspended because it didn't have a three-compartment sink.
She denied that there were other violations, saying, "That's it."
She said her husband planned to reopen the restaurant next week.
Choe did not respond to calls seeking comment about the other violations listed in the inspection report.
Choe said her husband's two sisters had run the restaurant until late last year when he took over.
