Rats and the city for NY restaurant

A trendy Manhattan restaurant that became a tourist destination after appearing in Sex and the City is the latest eatery to be closed by New York health inspectors since the emergence of a video showing a rat-infested fast-food joint.

Inspectors found no rodents at the Coffee Shop, but listed violations including inadequately refrigerated raw hamburger meat and milk.
