Restaurant Report Card: January 2012

Each month, we post a report of restaurants in the 10002 ZIP code that scored 28 points or more on their health department inspections, the equivalent of “C” grades under the city’s rating system. We also call out establishments that excelled, by earning 3 points or fewer.

For more details on how the city grades food establishments, see the guide (PDF). Because of the way the online search function operates, we cannot link directly to individual restaurant reports here, but you can visit the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s website, type in the name of any restaurant and view the details of inspectors’ findings for all recent visits. You can also read our Restaurant Report Card archives here.

Please note that restaurateurs are permitted to post a “grade pending” certificate while they appeal an unsatisfactory score, so those listed here may not currently display a “C” grade in their storefronts.

Here’s the report for January.

First, the good news: Grit N Glory and New Hao Ke Restaurant both scored 0 points. Lucky Jack’s bar scored 2 points, while Ciao Bella pizza scored 3 points.

Several local restaurants and bars reopened in January after brief closures due to health inspection issues, including Congee Bowery, Teany and UC Lounge, which reopened Jan. 25.

Here’s the list of 28 points and over, from most points to least:
