For those of you who live in New York City, you have been noticing more health department grades popping up in restaurant windows before the holidays.
Turns out this seemingly new procedure is the effect of a change in health department inspection regulations back in July. Now, once inspected, every restaurant must place their letter grade card prominently in the window. The grades range from A, B and C. Anything below a C is considered failure.
While I’m happy to see NYC cracking down on food safety, I now pay special attention to letter grades while choosing a restaurant. Can you imagine bringing friends, a client, or a date to a B or C restaurant? No thank you!
