Sewage or liquid waste in the restaurant “was not properly disposed” of following a plumbing problem, 14850 reported, citing an order closing the restaurant.

“It is their responsibility to make sure that their facility is properly maintained,” Adriel Shea told 14850, “and to correct problems immediately if they present a health concern to the customers or employees.”

The Ithaca Voice has gotten confirmation of the report from the Tompkins County Health Department and is awaiting more details. We’ll update this story when we learn more.
