Neighborhood: Prospect Heights, Brooklyn
Address: 552 Vanderbilt Ave.
Why It Received a "B":
1) Hot food item not held at or above 140º F.
2) Food worker does not use proper utensil to eliminate bare hand contact with food that will not receive adequate additional heat treatment.
3) Personal cleanliness inadequate. Outer garment soiled with possible contaminant. Effective hair restraint not worn in an area where food is prepared.
4) Proper sanitization not provided for utensil ware washing operation.
Why It Doesn't Matter: This is Prospect Heights' around-they-way ramen spot, and it serves up Brussels sprouts better than you do. The plate of fried kale, topped with a light vinaigrette and golden raisins, is better than what you're cooking. Chuko has its beer license now, so crack open a Six Point while you select a ramen bowl from the simple menu. Chuko only does a few things so that they'll do them well. Learn this.
