Dean & Deluca Cited Again for Health Code Violations
Dean & Deluca at 3276 M St., NW, was closed Feb. 19 for one day by the D.C. Health Department. The fancy food store was cited for various health hazards, "including but not limited to heavy infestation of vermin."
Last year -- also in February -- Dean & Deluca was closed for a day by D.C. Health for rodent droppings and more. Live birds in the outside cafe were also a problem. At the time, the coffee bar in the outside cafe was moved into the building. Also sold outside were bagels, pastries and other sweets. Now, all those items are sold in the historic market building.
The store is open again and did not comment on this citation.
