Anything over 13 points causes you to lose your “A”

thanks.

The DOH link is hardly opening on my computer, not at all on my phone, but I was able to read this: Which Inspections Are Not Graded? The following are scored but not graded: • Initial inspections that result in a score of 14 points or higher

So, every restaurant can be presumed an "A" unless posted otherwise.

and this:
Food Safety Inspections: What’s Behind the Score? A critical violation, for example, serving raw food such as a salad without properly washing it first, carries a minimum of 5 points.

I have never seen a restaurant employee washing lettuce. In fact, I cannot recall lettuce in salad or on sandwich/burger being even remotely wet.

14-27 is a B.

three inspections of 28 or more get you closed. it's not a one-shot deal.

have you ever been served a meal on a wet plate? do you think that restaurants wash their dishes?

If their is no grade posted, and it isn’t a new restaurant, chances are pretty good the owner is choosing NOT to post it. Or, it is out being professionally framed at this time.

dss, I genuinely would like to know if restaurants typically wash lettuce. Especially now that I know it is required by the DOH! I don't think they generally do, have never seen any evidence of it though some may buy pre-washed greens.

sorry if I hit a nerve. I don't know what you're trying to get at with your clean dish equivalency. Pizza parlors often serve slices straight onto trays that I also question have been properly washed. I've only seen the trays get wiped.

It’s actually up to the discretion of the inspector to close them or not after 3 failing grades.

that is true.

and that "discretionary" aspect is one of the problems with the process, i think.

If the cash under the table isn't enough I guess they get closed.  That type discretion can lead to corruption

I don't know what you're trying to get at with your clean dish equivalency.

I understood dssh to mean that a dry plate is no more suggestive of the plate not being washed than dry lettuce in a salad is suggestive that the lettuce hasn't been washed because both items are supposed to be dry. A wet salad dilutes the dressing. That's why for the home market, salad spinners are popular.

Yes, restaurants wash lettuce and other fruits and vegetables. If you've ever washed your own lettuce, you know there can be dirt and bugs in a head of lettuce (and lots of sand in spinach and bok choy.). So if restaurants weren't washing lettuce, you'd encounter dirt, sand, and flies with frequency. It wouldn't make sense for most restaurants to use pre-washed salad because there's a premium charged for that convenience, restaurants operate on pretty tight margins, use a lot of lettuce for salads, sandwiches, garnishes, etc., and prep cook is a pretty low paying job.

Prep work is typically not done during service, and is normally done where customers can't see it, even at a restaurant with an open kitchen, so that's why you've never seen a restaurant employee washing lettuce. Neither have I as a customer, but I've seen loads of lettuce be washed or done it myself as a food service worker.
