History: This was the restaurant’s first routine health inspection.
What the inspector saw: The inspector found five priority violations, the minimum for a probationary rating. Those included an employee who put on a new pair of gloves without washing his hands, no paper towels at a hand washing sink, recently purchased pans with sticker residue, and a walk-in refrigerator not keeping foods below established temperatures.
Follow-up: A follow-up inspection has not yet been conducted.
Response: Owner Lisa Sopher said that all of the issues were resolved “the first day,” and expects to pass the follow-up inspection scheduled for Dec. 10. “I put my foot down” on kitchen employees about the violations, she added.
