BK restaurants closed after failing to make the grade

BROOKLYN - Several restaurants in Brooklyn have been forced to shut their doors after coming up short during a recent inspection.

Ozzie's coffee shop on 7th Avenue in Park Slope is just one establishment displaying a sign that states it was closed by the Department of Health. The manager of Ozzie's says the issues are being fixed. He says he hopes to reopen soon.

Department of Health officials say they will close a business if they find a public health hazard. The restaurants have an opportunity to fix the violations and get a re-inspection.

La Taqueria was also forced to close, while Park Café was able to proudly display the new letter grade 'A' in its window.
