Now it’s cooking!

A Brooklyn Heights eatery is serving customers again, after city inspectors forced it to temporarily close last week when they discovered multiple health-code violations at the establishment.

The owners of Montague Street restaurant Teresa’s reopened the spot on March 15, just days after Department of Health officials slapped them with violations following a March 12 visit, including two critical infractions for evidence of mice inside the eatery, and for a kitchen setup that did not adequately protect food from contamination, according to records.

The agency also dealt the Polish joint between Hicks Street and Pierrepont Place a third, non-critical violation for the restaurateurs’ failure to properly vermin-proof the space.

The city required the eatery’s owners to remedy all of the violations before allowing Teresa’s to reopen, according to Health Department spokeswoman Danielle De Souza.

A rep for the restaurant could not be immediately reached for comment.
