Iyanze Restaurant Followup

Iyanze, the still-new West African-style restaurant in Uptown, Chicago was propping open its rear door, a violation of Chicago health code. Their dumpster was overflowing and unsecured, another violation. In our report on June 1 (see original report here), we reported that Iyanze restaurant, 4623 N. Broadway, was violating Chicago health codes by leaving their back door open with an overflowing dumpster nearby. A 311 operator told me that a health inspector gave Iyanze a "pass" on June 3, 2009. Subsequently, Chicago News Bench revisited Iyanze's back door and found that they now have a screen door installed. Now, vermin cannot enter through the propped-open rear door. However, we also found that the dumpster is still frequently filled over capacity and the lid is not closed flush with the top of the dumpster. Although the door issue seems to have been resolved, the issue of the dumpster remains open (no pun intended). See Comments... Visit Our Online Store Chicago News Bench RSS Feed Hey!
