First John's, the The Coffee Shop, now the unthinkable—Di Fara's.
It is time for the police or some vigilante group to intervene and stop the Department of Health in its tracks. Look, guys, I'm sorry you're all so lame that you didn't spot the nation of rats forming a de facto government at the Taco Bell/KFC in the Village, and are so angry that the whole city caught you in your lameness (or, I suppose you might be feeling guilty—NAH!), but you're not impressing or fooling anymore with your Visigoth tear through New York's culinary treasures. Oh, yeah! You're BIG men shuttin' down classic joints instead of giving 'em warnings and a timetable to clean things up. You'll get a gold star for sure from Bloomie by year's end. And while he's pinning it on you, you might mention to him that all the rats scampering around might be coming from the thousands of green-lighted development projects ripping up the earth to make Gotham safe for condo-dwellers.
According to Slice, Di Fara owner Dom DeMarco's great crimes were not wearing a hat and gloves. Jesus. Anyone who's been there and seen the pies put together on the spot with only fresh ingredients knows there's not a healthier place in town. Dom said he will reopen his Midwood miracle by next Tuesday. But you know what? That's not good enough. Nobody has the right to shut down Di Fara's for six days, except Dom himself.
