A popular Polish deli has closed after a recent health inspection found evidence of mice and contaminated foods, among other violations.

Park Deli, located at 209 Nassau Avenue, across from McGoldrick Park, was closed Jan. 16 following an inspection by the city’s Department of Health. Officials issued the deli 65 citations, mostly concerning unsanitary conditions in the establishment.

Krystyna Godawa, who has owned the deli for the last 14 years, said she hopes to re-open this week.

“It’s the first time we’ve received anything below an ‘A’ rating,” Godawa said. “We always do very good on our inspections. I’m really hoping we can re-open tomorrow [Thursday].”

Ratings from the DOH are given based on the amount of citations an establishment receives. An ‘A’ rating is given when there are 13 or less violations.

Godawa said DOH officials will conduct another inspection of the deli on Jan. 22.

The deli is a Greenpoint institution. There has been a deli at that location since 1931 when it was established by German-American William Mullenbrock.
