New York City Restaurant Grading

In this week’s New York Press, there’s an interesting article on the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s restaurant inspections system,  “Grade Expectations” by Sam Roudman.  A new inspection system was put into place last year that uses a point system where restaurants get an A if their score is 0-13 points, a B if 14-27 points and a C for 28 points or more.  If a restaurant doesn’t get an A on its first inspection, it has a certain period of time to address concerns for a second inspection.  More information is available on the NY-DHMH Web site.  Apparently, if the restaurant gets a B or C, the grade is posted as “Grade Pending” to give the restaurant an opportunity to rectify the issues.
