Dazies Restaurant, a Sunnyside landmark that offers up-market Italian cuisine, was closed by the New York City health department on November 30.
The department, in a report listed on its website, cited “evidence of mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas” as the cause.
Lily Gavin, the well known owner of Dazies, expressed disappointment in the department’s findings.
“The department has not found any problems in our kitchen or in the preparation of our food,” she said.
The problem, she said, was in the basement where the dry goods are kept and that has been rectified. She said that the empty store next door had created problems for the restaurant.
The restaurant reopened on Friday, Dec. 3.
