The blue plate special at the Newsroom Cafe: cockroaches!
Turns out the eatery to the stars, which was shut down last week due to "vermin infestation," had an outbreak of live cockroaches in the main food prep area, according to the Department of Health. They were shut down for 48 hours, an automatic punishment in such a case, but attended a hearing to prove the problem had been chemically treated and re-opened with a B rating.
BTW -- we went down to the Newsroom Cafe last week to get the scoop, but the manager had us escorted off the property. Perhaps they didn't want us to bump into the Orkin Man.
Newsroom Cafe -- La Cucaracha!
