 History: Since 2015, the restaurant has had a mixed record, earning an excellent, good and needs improvement inspection rating. This was its first failed inspection.

What the inspector saw: The inspector observed eight priority violations, including an employee washing his hands in the food-preparation sink, an employee sweeping the floor and then proceeding to chop cabbage without washing his hands, equipment with encrusted food debris stored as clean, inadequate cooling and date-marking of food and chopped cabbage being stored in dirty cardboard boxes.

Follow-up: The restaurant passed a Dec. 30 follow-up inspection.

Response: No one responded to a message seeking comment by deadline.
