El Tamarindo in Adams Morgan Reopens After Pest Issues, DOH Says
A Mexican restaurant in Adams Morgan has reopened following a D.C. food safety and hygiene inspection that uncovered a pest problem at the eatery and led to its temporary closure, according to the D.C. Department of Health.
El Tamarindo at 1785 Florida Ave. NW passed a DOH follow-up inspection yesterday after an agency inspector closed it Tuesday, allowing it to open again.
The inspector on Tuesday determined the restaurant was “failing to minimize the presence of insects, rodents and other pests” on its premises, according to the D.C. health agency. A DOH food establishment closure notice posted on the El Tamarindo’s door that day said the eatery couldn’t serve customers “until further notice” for presenting “an imminent health hazard(s) to the public.”
DOH has yet to provide any further details about its inspections. The agency typically releases full inspection reports within days of its inspectors’ visits.
An El Tamarindo representative couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
