UPDATE: The restaurant got the hot water back on and a health inspector gave it permission to reopen.
A Boston health inspector yesterday ordered Beantown Pho and Grill, 272 Newbury St., closed until it gets a plumber in to restore its hot water.
Without hot water, workers cannot adequately wash their hands - or cooking and eating utensils
The inspector also found the restaurant was storing uncooked food above "ready to eat" food in a refrigerator, which is also a potential reason to order a shutdown, but noted the restaurant promptly fixed that problem.
The restaurant can re-open once it can prove it is providing water of at least 110 degrees.
