Restaurant safety grades: creativity in action
I haven’t said anything to date about New York City’s new safety grades for restaurants. Their purpose is to encourage restaurants to do a better job on safety procedures so customers don’t get sick.
As the Health Department explains, the grades are awarded on a point system. Points go to violations of food safety regulations. The fewest points get an A. Those with the most get a C. The B grade is someplace in between.
Wall Street Journal blogger Aaron Rutkoff discovered a restaurant with an exceptionally creative method for dealing with its embarrassing B grade.
Enjoy the weekend and watch out for those grades!
