Ben's Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers, Wheatley Plaza, Greenvale, NY, USA
Location: Ben's Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers, Wheatley Plaza, Greenvale, NY, USA
Report Type: Food Poisoning
Details: This occurred several years ago but it has bothered me ever since. I noticed sloppy things like kitchen workers napping in booths in the rear of the place. But I really liked the $10 lunch. After one occasional visit I developed diarrhea literally before I left the restaurant. My bowels were ready to burst and I spent ten minutes in their toilet losing my lunch. By the way norovirus -- from touching the nose -- is one of the few pathogens that acts so quickly. I never went back. The county health dept. is a complete joke -- I know having worked as a cook in Nassau -- and I don't know if I bothered to report it.
