If you're falling increasingly behind at the office because your assistant mysteriously disappeared after lunch, you might consider checking the bathroom: It appears that the Newsroom Cafe is now dishing up its glamorous vegetarian treats in C-rated style after a city health inspection discovered a fridge storing food at a less-than-optimal temperature. One report places the cost of squaring it away at around $40,000, but we're with the intrepid critic at Yelp who recently saluted the starry-eyed mecca's sense of germological adventure:
"Generally, this favorite industry lunch spot ... rocks a B, but they're trying to hide their current C rating behind a pole at the moment. ... What's weird about Newsroom is that I've gone there with a B rating, got the pasta, and had to go doodoo, but I went there with a C rating, got the vegan spinadilla (spinach quesadilla) and there were no bad doodoos to be found."
Caveat emptor, we suppose, but still — you could come up with worse excuses for taking the sluggish, post-holiday afternoon off. Take advantage of it while you can!
