Danny Bowien has reopened the New York outpost of Mission Chinese after the Department of Health shut down the popular hipster Chinese joint, thanks to a "severe mouse infestation," Eater reports.

"To the Neighborhood and our patrons, We apologize for any inconvenience that you may have been caused. We were recently found to be in violation of several health codes and would like to address the information circulating on the internet by being completely transparent and disclosing the codes we were in violation of, and the measures we have taken to address them," Bowien said in a statement. The restaurant will be open today for dinner service, as a health department follow-up "found our actions to be satisfactory and our restaurant to be in full-compliance with all health codes."

There are 10 total violations he lists, including "canned food product observed dented," or "pesticide use not in accordance with label or applicable laws." The most important violations that caused the shutdown, however, are numbers one, three, and 10. The first noted that cold food items were stored above 41 degrees, while smoked fish and packaged foods were above 38 degrees. The third (and the violation that made the headlines) included evidence of live rodents and mice in food or prep areas, as well as in the garbage areas. The 10th involved plumbing, where an "anti siphonage or backflow prevention device not provided where required. [The] equipment or floor [was] not properly drained; sewage disposal system in disrepair or not functioning properly."

Bowien claims to have addressed all 10 violations. A list of the violations and their actions are below, courtesy of Eater.

Department of Health Policy and Management

The Department of Health Policy and Management focuses on eliminating disparities in health and health care, improving how care is delivered and managed, creating effective health policy and financing public health services delivery.

At a time of extraordinary need driven by rising health care costs, the aging of the population and growing health disparities, our faculty experts mentor students for research and careers in areas related to these critical issues.

Maryland is a national leader in health care reform, and our students have the opportunity to work on innovative initiatives to improve health for Maryland’s most vulnerable diverse populations. Students also benefit from contact with Washington DC-based non-profit and private organizations, as well as federal and state agencies.

Our faculty members represent disciplines including health services, health management, economics, public health, public policy and organizational development.

The School of Public Health will get you where you want to go. The MHA program was great because it combined both the business principles of health and health care systems, as well as the core principles of public health, which is unique to the program. It allows you to create an impact.

A vision statement is a short description of an organization’s aspirations and the wider impact it aims to create. It should be a guiding beacon to everyone within the organization and something which underpins internal decision-making and determines the intended direction of the organization.

In short: The mission is the “ what ” and the “ how ,” and the vision is the “ why .”

The mission statement defines what an organization does and includes tangible goals which the organization strives to accomplish. The vision statement, meanwhile, should clarify the aspirations of the organization and define the direction it’s heading in.

Many organizations combine the two statements to form one clearly defined reason for existing that unites the efforts of everyone involved.

Here's what Warriors fans can expect about the dining experience when Chase Center reopens

The Burger Dog by Hot Dog Bill's was one of the many food items served at Chase Center earlier this year. It will be among items that can be ordered via a mobile device in 2021.

Whether it&rsquos having a steaming container of Cantonese barbecue pork buns delivered to your seat or never having to stand in a line for Bakesale Betty&rsquos chicken sandwiches thanks to widespread mobile ordering, the post-pandemic dining experience at San Francisco&rsquos Chase Center is set to feel very futuristic.

But it remains a distant reality.

The Warriors were hoping to bring fans back to games in 2020, but their plan to do so, which the organization submitted to San Francisco&rsquos Department of Public Health last month, was rejected by the city, at least for now. The organization has continued preparing for future in-person dining, including making &ldquo25 different plans for 15 different scenarios,&rdquo according to Mike Ringler, the Warriors&rsquo Senior Director of Food, Beverage and Hospitality.

The whole dining process, from ordering to eating, will be streamlined for fans &mdash no long lines for a Big Nate&rsquos BBQ pulled pork sandwich or Hot Dog Bills burger dog &mdash and cash will be a thing of the past. As much as possible, eating at Chase Center will be fast-paced with little to no interaction with cashiers and bartenders. All of this was an option for some seats before, but the pandemic has since made it a necessity for all visitors.

&ldquoIn a perfect world, eating at the arena doesn&rsquot look totally different from how it did before all of this. We want to provide that familiar experience and let people feel comfortable and safe,&rdquo said Ringler. &ldquoBut, honestly, if we&rsquore erring on the side of safety, the experience may be altered in different ways.&rdquo

The chicken sandwich from Bakesale Betty was one of the more popular food items at Chase Center in 2020, before the pandemic.

Carlos Avila Gonzalez / The Chronicle

The Warriors have not played in front of fans at Chase Center since March 10, only days before the Bay Area&rsquos shelter-in-place orders banned large gatherings to curb the spread of coronavirus. Currently, San Francisco is among five Bay Area counties under the most severe shelter-in-place directives since the original orders that shut down Chase Center, which include no indoor and outdoor dining, and requiring that people largely stay at home for the rest of the year.

Among the varying levels of attendance the city ultimately approves for Chase Center, be it 25% capacity throughout the venue or fans only being allowed into a certain section of the arena, the Warriors have a dining plan ready to go, Ringler said.

It makes sense that Chase Center is focusing on how fans can eat when it reopens because its culinary offerings have been a pillar of the property&rsquos acclaim since it first hosted events in 2019. Warriors officials don&rsquot have a timeline in mind when it comes to reopening the arena to fans, but the organization hopes it will be sometime next year, before the end of the season in July.

In an interview with The Chronicle, Ringler and Warriors Director of Hygiene Jacklyn Ventura shared specifics on what eating at Chase Center will look in the future due to COVID-19.

Here are five important takeaways:

Cash is the past. Debit cards are the future.

Instead of using cash, fans can use credit cards or exchange their cash for prepaid debit cards, which they can use both inside and outside of the arena in restaurants in the surrounding plaza known as Thrive City. Ringler said this is part of the team&rsquos push to limit possible ways for COVID-19 to spread in the arena.

&ldquoWe&rsquore not trying to force you to spend that money in Chase Center,&rdquo he said. &ldquoOnce you have it, it just becomes a debit card you can use (for online purchases) or maybe in the restaurants at Thrive City whenever you want.&rdquo

The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging is committed to providing older adults with a variety of resources to age optimally. In addition to home delivered and congregate meal options, the VCAAA offers free nutrition counseling, nutrition education courses, and access to recipes for healthy eating on a budget.

Recipes included on this page focus on the unique nutritional needs of seniors. Each recipe is registered-dietitian approved to meet U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans and geared toward the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) and Adequate Intake for vitamins and elements for older adults. These meals provide a minimum of one-third of the DRI and accommodate diabetic and low-sodium diets.

Many of the recipes were contributed by the great chefs at Senior Nutrition Program meal sites throughout the county. These chefs know that seniors expect and deserve meal options that are more than just nutritious – they also want food that looks good and tastes delicious when eating at local dining halls or receiving home-delivered meals. Additionally, the ingredients of these recipes in large part can be found at local 99 Cents Only Stores and other budget-friendly stores.

“At Limoniera, we know that good health and maintaining balance continues to be important to all of us, and that produce and citrus can be critical to this balance,” says Harold Edwards, President and CEO of Limoneria. “We understand that people are busy and looking for solutions that are easy to incorporate into their busy lives, and the Nature’s Pharmacy app does just that. Limoneira is proud to be a leader in educating consumers about how to eat their way to optimum health naturally.”

We’ve cross-tabulated 55 health concerns including the need to increase good cholesterol, prevent cardiovascular disease or ease insomnia, as well as desired outcomes, including improving energy levels or reducing wrinkles, with 74 fruits and vegetables. All of these foods, which can be found in the produce section of most grocery stores, contain 12 essential vitamins and 11 essential minerals that address these concerns or help with desired outcomes. By selecting a concern or outcome, the app then generates foods in the produce aisle that can help consumers achieve their health goals.

“Nature’s Pharmacy and Take a Healthy Stand are important components of the Food as Medicine movement taking hold nationwide,” said Megan Roosevelt, a Limoneira nutritionist and founder of Healthy Grocery Girl®. “Food as Medicine maintains that fresh, healthy produce such as lemons can help avoid an expensive and perhaps less effective trip to the grocery department’s supplement aisle.”

This app is just one of several educational platforms to be launched as part of our Take a Healthy Stand™ platform, which showcases the many ways that citrus and produce can play a role in helping to alleviate serious health issues as well as enhancing personal appearance and wellbeing. The foundation underpinning our Take A Healthy Stand™ educational campaign is consumer-friendly messaging supported by research by the Institute of National Health and other objective organizations.

Certain diet and lifestyle factors can speed up the aging process which may have a negative effect on your health and physical appearance. For example, oxidative damage from the build-up of free radicals speeds up the aging process which can result in wrinkles, age spots, dryness and decreased skin elasticity. The National Institute of Health has published research studies that have demonstrated that antioxidants may help slow aging and improve skin health. One simple way to consume more antioxidants and prevent aging is to consume lemons. Both the peel and juice are rich in Vitamin C, an antioxidant that also supports collagen production which important for skin elasticity and skin health. The pectin in lemon rind can also help with weight loss. Lemons also contain limonene which is used in cosmetics and also in a range of other items, such as fragrance and bath products.

Continued emerging research published in the National Institute of Health reveals that what you eat – and don’t eat – may help prevent certain types of cancers. For example, LEMON juice successfully inhibits the growth of several types of cancer cells. Hesperidin and d-limonene (plant Compounds found in LEMONS) have both been shown to have cancer-preventing properties.

Diet and lifestyle both play a huge role in heart disease prevention. Studies published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism have shown that hesperidin and diosmin (plant compounds in LEMONS) have been found to help lower cholesterol. It has also been demonstrated that walking and eating lemons every day is associated with a decrease in blood pressure.
