DOH Inspections: The Grossest Offenders

The subject of Department of Health restaurant inspections is a bottomless well of satisfying but often downright disgusting information about which of our favorite restaurants will and will not increase our chances of getting food poisoning. After the Cuozz touched on this subject last week, we sent one of our top field agents deep into the DOH's new website to see what horror he could find. And horror he did find, friends.

Per the diagram above, an inspection score of below 28 is passing. Anything north of that requires a follow up inspection. That is to say, the higher a venue's score, the more frightening it is. For example, with a score of 42, Soho House failed their inspection.

Just ahead, some of our most favorite places that we'll likely never eat at again.
