Jubilatka Is Closed!

Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

Anyone craving a Polish donut or a little babka before work this morning probably noticed that Jubilatka was shut down by the New York Department of Health yesterday.

Initially I was pretty shocked by this development (I love their apple pies) but when I looked up their latest inspection online what I found was quite horrifying: 45 points*. A maximum of 27 is allowable for a restaurant to pass inspection. Here’s the violation that creeped me out the most:

Plumbing not properly installed or maintained; anti-siphonage or backflow prevention device not provided where required; equipment or floor not properly drained; sewage disposal system in disrepair or not functioning properly.

Looks like I might be shopping for another bakery. Yikes!

*As a point of comparison, the shuttered Sunview Luncheonette racked up 47 points.

  2. This is Greenpoint, certainly a little sewage problem can be overlooked. It’s probably even the added ‘Greenpoint authenticity’ that makes me love their apple turnovers so much.
