I just want to add that even the most stupid mistakes can take points off your final grade and I've seen gross kitchens get 100 points.

A lid not on a drink behind the kitchen line will get 5 points off your grade. A personal item in a walk in cooler will take points off your final grade.

I`m a chef in Sarasota and I`ve gotta tell you the Health Department here is about as clueless as clueless can get.

To trust any report they put out isn`t a good idea.

Just for full disclosure, my Inspection reports are always excellent so I`m not just spouting bias.

Most of the things they do get you for are utterly ridiculous while totally missing things that matter.

As the poster above alluded to, they`d miss something like raw chicken dripping into ready to eat foods but they`d nail you for not having a lid on a cup that was far away from any food items.

Then there was the time I had to teach the inspector how to use his digital thermometer.

If the link is comprehensive, somebody's not doing their job. There is NO way there could possibly be only 16 restaurants either fined or warned for a full month if they were doing their job.

Even great restaurants will get an occasional point off/warning.

This place feels like Mayberry sometimes.

But I don't really mind that.
