After a brief brush with the Health Department, Veniero’s opened again on Friday after passing a follow-up inspection. A friend of Grub heard someone in line ask, “Are these cookies safe?” Owner Linda Martella assures us that indeed the cookies are safe. Although she questions why an unprecedented three inspectors stayed six hours during their first visit, she says the department was ultimately fair with her and is working with her family to prevent more infestation as the bakery closes its next-door prep area and moves it upstairs. Onward, dough!
