UPDATE, FEB. 2012: Today, Sticky Rice restaurant, at 4018 N Western Avenue in Chicago, gets good reviews on Yelp and Zagat. I want to make it clear that the incident of 2009 has long been resolved.
This post was originally published in May, 2009 with the headline "Sticky Rice Chicago Shut Down by Health Inspectors for Critical Violations." That was a long time ago, and those violations have long since been cleaned up. Today, Sticky Rice is a much respected eatery.
