If you've recently been to the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell in Penn Station, you might want to think about where that extra crunch in your Cool Ranch Doritos taco comes from: On November 8 the Department of Health shut down the establishment -- which is also connected to a Nathan's Hot Dogs, Colombo's Yogurt, and a Horton's -- after finding bugs that indicate the presence of sewage.

Update: Chobani identified the mold as M. circinelloides, which food scientist Randy Worobo says should not pose a health risk to most consumers.

Original item, September 5: Some alarming news for fans of highly proteinaceous yogurt: This morning Upstate New York-based yogurt maker Chobani issued a formal recall of cups manufactured at its Idaho plant, around five percent of its total production. Chobani has been quietly contacting individual stores for a week after the company was flooded with reports from consumers of bloated cups, odd-tasting yogurt, and, in some cases, gastrointestinal illness.

The common cicada, as it looks just before you eat it


Unless you've been hiding underground for the last few months, you probably already know that New York City is due for a cicada invasion. Indeed, the cicadas themselves have been concealed deep in the dirt as they've undergone their 17-year life cycle, and are only emerging for the purpose of having sex with other cicadas - which might make the coming infestation seem even more gross. Imagine a sky darkened with flying pests, splooging indiscriminantly from the skies. What can you do besides hiding in your apartment and waiting for the cicadas to leave? Eat them!

One of the two storefronts of Sarita's, formerly known as S'Mac, with its gate pulled partway down.


Now known as Sarita's Mac and Cheese, the restaurant formerly known as S'mac - which has two non-adjacent storefronts on East 12th between First and Second avenues -
has been closed by the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene because it failed its health inspection, a passerby noted to FiTR early this afternoon. But when we arrived to take a look, the gate on the premises has been coyly pulled down to conceal the familiar yellow notice, and another white notice posted, saying "We are closed to make some emergency repairs." Nice evasion, fellas!

When a Restaurant Screws You

The offending piece of fish (click on image to enlarge)


Even the best restaurants make mistakes. Common ones include spilling a glass of water in the lap of a customer, who, of course, has no dry set of clothes; delaying the appearance of a dish by an unconscionable length of time, say one hour after the previous course was taken away; or allowing something aesthetically gross to happen, the most common of which in New York might be a roach running across your table. All these have happened to me, but none seemed as bad as what occurred yesterday in an Upper West Side restaurant, and an expensive one, too.
