Popular East Bay pop-up restaurant Broke Ass Cooks shut down by health inspectors

Pandemic-born runaway hit Broke Ass Cooks just became yet another pop-up restaurant to be shut down by Alameda County health inspectors, according to its founders. The move indicates that the county is beginning to crack down on the growing number of food businesses operating in legal gray areas since the pandemic has started.

Founders Bilal Ali, Keone Koki and Hoang Le, who started the jerk chicken business in their shared West Oakland backyard without health department permits, said their landlord told them Wednesday that she had received a notice from Alameda County that they had to cease operations at the property. A spokesperson from the health department confirmed that it sent the notice of a violation of the California Retail Food Code for being an unpermitted food vendor after receiving a complaint about the business.

Embark on a healthy journey with Clean Eatz

Knoxville News Sentinel

Packing on the pounds during coronavirus stay-at-home restrictions has jokingly been called the “quarantine 15,” but it’s no joke. According to WebMD, the disruption in daily routines has caused 47 percent of women and 22 percent of men to gain weight over the past few months.

Being less active, stress eating and even the mini boom in home baking are some causes. However, eating well with healthy food doesn’t have to be hard; the Clean Eatz Farragut restaurant can help you shed some weight and stay on track. General manager Zach Sattler says, “It’s not a diet plan; it’s an affordable, healthy and fresh lifestyle.”

When a retired police sergeant teamed up with a Teaneck restaurant, the result was 50 hot meals to feed the front-line workers Wednesday night at Holy Name Medical Center. 

BV Tuscany Ristorante on Cedar Lane has been open for business, doing curbside pick-ups like everyone else. Longtime customer and retired Teaneck police sergeant Phil Lavigne said when he went to pick up his food order, the owner asked him if he knew how he could help do his part during the coronavirus pandemic.

“He really wanted to donate meals, but didn’t know how to go about it,” Lavigne said.

Medici on 57th – Restaurant | Bakery

 


Delivery & Pick-Up is available 7am – 8pm while dining-rooms throughout Illinois are Closed 


The Medici, originally a gallery and coffee house, was located behind the Green Door bookshop in Hyde Park. Hans Morsbach bought it in 1962 for $1,750. While it remains one of the best coffee houses in the city, the Medici has long offered a full menu. Though it was not easy, and sometimes the odds were long, the Medici grew from humble beginnings to Hyde Park’s largest restaurant. The Medici staff and I are grateful for the loyalty and support of our customers who allowed us to become a success. The Medici is now located on 57th Street between Kimbark and Kenwood Avenues near the University of Chicago campus. We are a two building operation with the combined Bakery & Delicatessen located just east of the Restaurant. Check out our extensive and eclectic menus!
