A is for Acceptable Sanitary Conditions

NYC Grade LetterIn July 2010, there were more than 24,000 restaurants in New York City when the Board of Health voted to rate and publicly display grade letters in the windows of every food establishment in NYC. As a tamed clean-freak, I am comforted in knowing that there are more people making rounds to monitor the cleanliness of the kitchens from whence our food is prepared. However, I haven’t noticed any letter Cs — only “Grade Pending”s — and I wonder if it makes a difference at all.

In the coming weeks, I will stop random strangers in the street to get their opinions of this new grading system. In the meantime, you can look up the grades of your favorite restaurants here:
