Cockroach infestation closed Good Food for a day
A Parker Place eatery became the first restaurant in Richmond shut down in 2012, nearly six months into the calendar year.
Good Food, at 1055-4380 No. 3 Rd., was closed by health officials earlier this month following a routine inspection.
The eatery was closed because of a "critical hazard" of cockroach infestation and unsanitary conditions.
According to an inspection report, live cockroaches were found throughout the premises, including moving across the floor, under equipment and in glue traps.
"An inadequate number of glue traps were observed onsite and most were filled with (sic) captures cockroaches, indicating an inadequate frequency of pest control and a substantial pest infestation in this premises."
Regarding the eatery's cleanliness, the report said: "This premises is in very poor sanitary condition and is ordered closed by Public Health Act Order."
The restaurant was closed on June 7, and permitted to re-open on June 8.
