Last week Dominique Ansel Bakery was shut down by the Department of Health after a video showed a mouse running around behind the counter. It was a tough break for Cronut lovers, but even tougher for the tiny Spring Street bakery that quickly became a media darling over the past year. While Dominique Ansel and his team—who have been working tirelessly, we're told, on remedying this—had hoped to be open again sometime today, they are currently still closed.
A rep for the bakery, Amy Ma, told us this morning over email, "The DOH did not find a single mouse or any rodent here at all. So much of what they cited as 'evidence of infestation' were cracks and holes on the walls that they saw as structural risks." Ma added they are "just waiting for our re-inspection... [which] should happen today."
