O’Crepes in Dumbo has been shut down by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. According to a @ocrepes Twitter status last week, “because of Landlord refusing to provide a restroom on the site Health Department closed us yesterday. What’s left for small business-hope!” OK, let’s hope they can reopen soon.
[UPDATE: O’Crepes posted a note (photo below) to let us know that they will “reopen soon.” (Ed: Come on! Spell check and proper English please.)]
[UPDATE 2: Vik from O’Crepes commented to say that Green Desk has been helpful and supportive of their business. They are working to comply with city regulations. Oh and we didn’t mean to give them a hard time
on the sign (I’m certainly not great with my English):
“Green Desk has been an amazing part of our business venture and we apologize for our twitter post that was unclear.There are some new city regulations that new york city business has to comply with–such as having a restroom directly on the site. These regulations are rather recent and therefor very unexpected.
Health Department shut us down at the middle of the lunch, leaving us very upset as to the chances of a small aspiring business such as O’crepes to survive. However, we found great support from Green Desk and we promise to open soon with more diverse menu, varied prices and delicious summer addition to our toppings.
We love you DUMBO and will do our best to keep your lunch and dinner options as healthy and delicious as possibly.”]
