Creative Pest Control

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Feb 25, 2009 7:45PM

it's one thing to run a restaurant and have a rodent infestation. It's another thing entirely to have that rodent infestation reported to the City Health Department because a customer saw a cook trying to kill said rodents with cooking utensils. That was the least of Nigerian Kitchen's worries. The Uptown restaurant (1163 W. Wilson) also had the following violations: mouse feces in the restaurant, cockroaches crawling on a wall, wastewater backing up form 3 clogged sinks in the kitchen and a mop sink being used to prepare vegetables.

We tried to call Nigerian Kitchen for comment, but no one's picking up the phone.
