New NYC restaurant inspection program
i hope this isn't a repeat post - i haven't seen any mention of it in the boards yet.
it appears as though restaurants in the city will now be required to post letter grades like they do in Los Angeles. IMHO, it's about time!
Reviving an old post...not sure if other threads are out there, but I'll continue to look.
Has anyone read the summaries provided by the NYT? I read one review and almost got sick at what they found...yet the restaurant got a grade of A?????
Plumbing not properly installed or maintained; anti-siphonage or backflow prevention device not provided where required; equipment or floor not properly drained; sewage disposal system in disrepair or not functioning properly.
Live roaches present in facility's food and/or non-food areas.
Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
Filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies present in facility's food and/or non-food areas. Filth flies include house flies, little house flies, blow flies, bottle flies and flesh flies. Food/refuse/sewage-associated flies include fruit flies, drain flies and Phorid flies.
As an aerospace quality manager with alot of experience in EH&S audits as well, I have to wonder how bad a restaurant would have to be to receive a failing grade?!
Live and learn! I thought it was universal. My grandfather had his "A" hanging in his malt shop window in the San Diego area when I was a kid, and all the years I've lived in Texas, the program has been here. Almost all of the cities here in the Dallas area post the health inspection results on line, so I can check restaurants, and for many communities grocers as well, before I head anywhere.
And now I find out I've been laboring under the false impression that NYC is ahead of the rest of the country? I'm gonna go cry.
