I’m one of those people that always likes to see the restaurant score at restaurants before ordering anything. But, those scores are going to change, or at least the methodology.
Restaurants can earn an “A” (90-100) with one serious food safety violation per inspection, such as an employee preparing food with dirty hands. (Most restaurants will receive routine inspections every six months.) Other grades include “B” (80-89) for satisfactory compliance; “C” (70-79) for marginal; and “U” (below 70) for unsatisfactory.
The latest version of the code is more closely based on federal model food service standards than previous versions to allow for more frequent updates.
The restauranteurs seem happy. Why does that make me worry?
