As you have almost certainly read, the Department of Health has suspended the inspector who passed the KFCTaco Bell the day before it was exposed on television as being staffed and patronized exclusively by rats. (Or something along those lines. We were half-watching.) So does that mean, we wonder, that when the department actually flags a restaurant, the place must be overrun by vermin gangs snitching on each other? Either way, we thought it worth taking a look at the name restaurants that have been recently cited.
The Rainbow Room
Nothing says Manhattan glamour like this storied restaurant on top of Rockefeller Center. But that doesnt mean you wont find flying insects in the kitchen. In case youre keeping track: They scored a 31.
Johns Pizza, Lincoln Center branch
This, the fanciest of the Johns branches, is pleasing enough to the eye, but the Health Department laid 67 points on the place for mice and other unsanitary conditions.
