Restaurant Grading

Under Supervisor Simitian's leadership, the Board approved a food safety scoring system readily available to consumers. Based on visits from County health inspectors to restaurants and other food-serving facilities, such as grocery and convenience stores, bakeries, and school cafeterias, the inspection system is designed to ensure that if a restaurant’s door is open, the food is safe to eat.
