The Manhattan restaurant where a couple claims they found an entire rodent in their food delivery order has been forced to hit the pause button on serving meals ... the Health Department has closed the joint.
Gammeeok, a Korean restaurant at the center of a recent lawsuit, got shut down Wednesday after an inspection.
A couple filed a lawsuit this week claiming they ordered food from Gammeeok over the weekend & discovered a dead rodent in their soup, an allegation the restaurant disputes.
The restaurant already has signage up on the door showing they've been closed by the Health Department. The eatery also appears to have put up its own sign claiming they are shuttered because of "maintenance."
Our sources say Health Department inspectors found rat droppings at the restaurant & food was not being stored at the correct temperature. We're also told the eatery did not have a trained supervisor on site.
The restaurant will have to jump through some hoops to open back up ... we're told Gammeeok will need to correct all the violations they got dinged for, plus pay any fines imposed by the city.
Our sources say Gammeeok was also operating without the proper permits, despite multiple warnings from the Health Department to renew their paperwork.
In the lawsuit, the couple also claimed Gammeeok had gotten a C grade from the Health Department in January, the worst possible letter grade.
