Monty Q’s is back!
The popular Montague Street pizzeria, which was was shut down by the Health Department on Monday for a second time in three years, reopened on Thursday.
The reopening means that owners have cleaned up their act after a Health Department inspection earlier in the week found evidence of mice and roaches, as well as improper storage of food — similar violations as the last time.
Health inspectors grade restaurants on a point scale based on cleanliness. Like golf, lower is better — zero-13 earns an eatery an A, 14-27 a B, and anything above 28 a C.
Monty Q’s had received a 50, more than double its previous score from January.
