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:

  • I used to have fish ๐ŸŸ and I love snorkeling. One of my next goals is to get a scuba diving license or certificate. The aquarium at Cape Town's V&A Waterfront was worth the visit. And I loved seeing the school children on tours react to the info shared about each beautiful creature. Learned so much! #southafrica #capetown #fish #aquarium #nemo #snorkeling #scubadiving

  • My tastebuds were seduced last night at an African restaurant along the Cape Town waterfront called Gold. After a 14 course meal, my belly cried, PLEASE NO MORE! From the first course, Zanzibar soup to the final dessert, Moroccan orange and walnut served with sweet orange and ground spice sauce, every dish was delish. The photos don't do the experience justice. Give thanks! #africa #southafrica #capetown #goldrestaurant #touristy #
