UPPER WEST SIDE — The West 72nd Street creperie Crepes & Delices was closed by the Health Department this week for a mouse infestation and not protecting food and utensils from contamination, among other violations.
The make-your-own-crepe shop at 124 West 72nd St. racked up 50 violation points during an inspection Tuesday, leading to its closure, according to the Health Department.
Inspectors found "evidence of mice or live mice present in facility's food and/or non-food areas," food not being protected from contamination and food-dispensing utensils that weren't being properly stored, the agency said.
Crepes & Delices also wasn't vermin-proof, the department noted.
The creperie, which opened in the winter of 2014, had a large sign posted next to its Health Department closure notice claiming it was dealing with "hot water disruption" and apologizing for the closure, according to a resident who noticed the sign Thursday.
The resident added that the shop, which is usually open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., was still closed as of mid-morning Thursday.
Crepes & Delices did not answer calls and did not immediately respond to an email for comment.
