We know restaurant owners are only human, but it's never a good feeling when you find out that your local market or favorite sushi spot has been shut down by the Los Angeles Public Health Department for unsanitary conditions and "gross contamination of utensils." We've compiled a recent list of places that have been closed, either permanently or temporarily, until they can get some things sorted out (ahem, killing the rodents and burying the bodies).
