Newbury Street pho place shut for lack of hot water

UPDATE: The restaurant got the hot water back on and a health inspector gave it permission to reopen.

A Boston health inspector yesterday ordered Beantown Pho and Grill, 272 Newbury St., closed until it gets a plumber in to restore its hot water.

Without hot water, workers cannot adequately wash their hands - or cooking and eating utensils

The inspector also found the restaurant was storing uncooked food above "ready to eat" food in a refrigerator, which is also a potential reason to order a shutdown, but noted the restaurant promptly fixed that problem.

The restaurant can re-open once it can prove it is providing water of at least 110 degrees.



The tourists must love going there because it has the name "Beantown" in its name. How painfully humiliating.
