Diabolical Dept. of Health Comes for New York Slices

The owner of Gaslight Pizzeria emails both Eater and Slice this morning to reveal he has received a warning from DOH not to serve reheated slices from the display case because it's a clear violation of agency rules. The owner knows that "cheese cannot be left between 40°F and 140°F and then reheated", but wonders how they can follow these rules and run a successful business. There are only a handful of pizzerias (DiFara's, Joe's, Artichoke come to mind) that are either popular enough or crazy enough to serve slices as the pies are finished, and any crackdown on the ubiquitous New York slice joint will surely turn the pizza industry upside down. Of course, certain places (like Ray's at St Marks and Third) certainly push the limit of letting their pies sit in the case, but let's not let a few bad apples spoil the bunch. Save the slice!
