Latin restaurant cleans up after temporary closure

El Punto Latino is a unique bar and restaurant serving up lunch during the day and dinner at night, open at late as 3am on weekends. But the party came to a grinding halt on March 13th when health inspectors shut the establishment down as a temporary emergency closure with 21 violations. The problems included food stored on the floor, raw chicken and pork stored over rice and vegetables, lives roaches under the ice machine, rodent droppings near the bar area, even chew marks on a bulk container of rice! State inspectors cleared the establishment to reopen, so 10News stopped in this week to see if conditions in the kitchen had improved.
