Home of the Cronut Reopens After Mouse Infestation
New York’s Dominique Ansel Bakery, the place where the cronut was created last year, spawning a craze and imitators around the world, reopened Tuesday (April 8th) after being shut down last week due to what the health department called a “severe mouse infestation.” The health inspection and shutdown was sparked by a YouTube video posted by a patron last Thursday showing a mouse scurrying out from under a bakery rack at the shop. The bakery cleaned, is re-cementing the basement floor, and passed a new inspection to be able to open again, but called the whole thing “sensationalized.” In a statement Monday, the store said, “In the past year, we have woken up daily knowing that our success has made us vulnerable to more malicious attacks than any small, one-shop business should ever have to suffer.” In honor of the re-opening, a special cronut inspired by the film Rocky was offered for one day only yesterday, black with a yellow golden star, as a, quote, “symbol of our dedication and resilience,” according to the bakery. It remains to be seen if the long lines will return after “Mousegate.”
