JACKSON HEIGHTS — The Jackson Heights Food Court, which re-opened in the fall after the city closed it for health code violations, mysteriously shuttered its doors again last week, according to customers.
The restaurant and market opened in 2012 in the site of a former movie theater at 73-07 37th Ave. inside Diversity Plaza.
The food court first closed in October after inspectors discovered it was operating without city or state permits, officials said.
Officials later found the presence of mice and other vermin inside the market.
The food court reopened in November with a complete renovation, and a sign noted it was under new management.
As of the fall it was still owned by Razib Haq, but when reached by phone he said he sold it and "didn't know" who currently operated the food court.
According to the DOH's website, it was last inspected in April and is listed as "grade pending."
People shopping nearby on Monday didn't know why it closed but said the food court hadn't been open since last week.
