Nussbaum & Wu Temporarily Closed By NYC Department Of Health

Where will we get our hangover bagels now?

At about 12 pm today, Nussbaum & Wu was closed due to NYC Department of Health violations. Prospective patrons were asked to leave, and the sign pictured at right was placed on the door.

But don’t fear: the closure is only for two or three days, as a Bwog reporter was told by Nussbaum staffers. Nuss has maintained an A health rating for some time, and is only closing temporarily today because 15 animal droppings were found in the basement. Staffers did not say which animal, but as Nuss’ previous sanitary violations include “evidence of mice or live mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas,” we’re guessing that mice are the culprits. (See the screenshot below for more information on Nuss’ health rating.)

Nussbaum & Wu has long been a favorite breakfast and lunch location for Columbia students, conveniently located at 113th Street and Broadway – just below the dorm that is colloquially named after the café. This closure comes after Absolute Bagel, another Upper West Side bagel favorite, was similarly temporarily shut down by the Department of Health in October.

We have reached out to the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for confirmation and more details, and will update this post upon receiving a response.

      @Maybe they know something others don't I’m still salty about the city closing Prosperity Dumpling. Never found anything nearly as good. Thanks a lot DeBlasio.
