YORKVILLE — A local Japanese eatery was shut down by the Health Department last week after inspectors found roaches and flies in the restaurant last week, according to officials.
Tenzan 89, at 1712 Second Ave. and East 89th Street, failed a March 9 inspection due to live roaches and areas where food was exposed to potential contamination, according to Health Department records.
The restaurant — which serves sushi rolls, tempura, don buri, katsu and teriyaki dishes — was slapped with 18 violation points total and ordered to be shut down, records show.
Tenzan passed a re-inspection and was permitted to reopen on Monday, according to Health Department spokeswoman Carolina Rodriguez.
A phone call to the restaurant on Tuesday went unanswered.
