Roaches, Rodents and Restaurants: Health Inspector September Round-up

​What do you call a hole-in-the-wall with several cockroaches living harmoniously among rodents? A restaurant closure. Miami health inspectors found more roaches in two restaurants in September than Snoop Dogg keeps in his glove compartment. But only two places were disciplined.

Familia Bar & Restaurant, 2818 NW 22nd Ave., Miami; Full Report
Health Inspector's Notes: Observed a total of 19 live roaches in the kitchen and two holes in the wall.

Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa, 4400 NW 87th Ave., Miami; Full Report
Health Inspector's Notes: Observed expired Food Manager Certification, 20+ rodent droppings in dry storage area, 10+ live roaches on and under food preparation table and an accumulation of dead or trapped birds, insects, rodents, or other pests, in control devices.
