We should note that we like City Fish Market and this one inspection would not stop us from eating there.
Tucker Dukes on Federal Highway in East Boca had 18 violations with 6 marked high priority, while Hong Kong Palace on Powerline (near Olive Garden) had 15 violations with 5 high priority.
The West Boca Pizza Hut on US-441 had 11 violations, 6 high priority. Hashi Sushi Thai in Shadowood also had 11 violations but only 1 was marked high priority.
Good News
Fresh Bites Cafe in Mission Bay wins this week with a perfect inspection – zero violations.
The Chipotle on Glades near Town Center and Gretl’s Bistro in East Boca were also perfect.

There were a few others in the “pretty good” category including Tijuana Flats on Powerline and Dominic’s on Glades by the Turnpike, both with 3 minor violations. We also see a licensing inspection for what we think is a new Japanese restaurant, Fuji Yama, on SW 18th near Outback Steakhouse. Outback is also in the report with 5 violations, 1 high priority.
Boca Indian Grill in Mission Bay had 4 violations, 2 high priority.
Cheesecake Factory at Town Center did well with 4 minor violations, particularly good when you consider the size and complexity of the place.

One thought on “24 Violations at City Fish Market”

  1. The horrible-sounding name alone has always struck me as unappetizing! ehe City Fish Market belongs in South Street Seaport, not Boca. LOL! Have yet to try them, but I did finally manage to nosh at Shanghai City which lies behind CFM. Took me a good 10 minutes to find it.
