Chicago Bar Louie Closes Due to Rat Droppings

Chicago city health inspectors are closing a West Loop Bar Louie restaurant. The restaurant was closed after inspectors found over 1,000 rat feces in a basement storage area. The restaurant was also cited for front and rear doors with gaps that allow access to rodents and insects, fruit flies in the kitchen, a poorly maintained outside garbage area, no sanitizing solution in the dishwashing machine and no hot water. The location will not be allowed to re-open until it has passed a re-inspection. The Bar Louie location in Hyde Park was shut earlier because of problems with mice, flies and housekeeping. At this time, no one has filed a premises lawsuit against the restaurant. To read the full story, click here.
