Sweetgreen's Nomad location is back to tossing salads today after being abruptly shut down by the DOH earlier this week. Management at the outpost of the popular salad mini-chain covered the windows with brown paper on Tuesday and posted a note explaining: "We discovered flaws with the construction of our facility that have led to pest issues." Indeed, a Monday inspection by the DOH found a myriad of violations, the most damning of which were "filth flies," evidence of mice, and a non-vermin proof facility. All told, the location racked up 47 violation points, enough to force the closure. But now whatever the specific issues were (perhaps uncovered grates, or small holes in the walls) have been patched up, and neighborhood office workers can go back to lining up for salad lunch.

Monday's DOH inspection was a rough one.
