We’re back with our restaurant inspection reports and 6 of them had more than 20 violations in this report. The biggest number was for Blue Martini in the Town Center mall with 28 violations. On the bright side only three of those were marked high priority and all three were corrected. We
China Wok in Sandalfoot Square had 27 violations with 6 of them marked high priority, with three of those related to hand washing. They also had a repeat problem with food temperatures: “Potentially hazardous (time/temperature control for safety) food cold held at greater than 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Observed fried rice left on cook line at 48°F- 54°F. Observed cut cabbage at 74°F and bean sprout at 74°F left out at room temperature on the cooks line.”
A couple places we like were hit with big numbers. California Pizza Kitchen in the mall had 24 violations, 5 of them high priority including stop sales on several items related to food temperatures and storage. And Bluefin Sushi (Yamato at Congress) had 23 violations with 6 high priority mostly involving hand washing and food storage.
Outside Boca, Bagel Tree in Delray had 24 violations with 5 high priority and El Portal in Deerfield had 21 violations with 2 high priority.
Jon Smith’s Subs in Mission Bay was perfect. In East Boca, Rebel House was also perfect, as were a couple Taco Bells and a McDonald’s.
Near FAU, Shake Shack and J. Alexanders were both near perfect with just one violation each.
A few of our West Boca favorites did well with two violations each, including Stella’s Pizzeria and Jimmy the Greek Taverna.
