Bronx Restaurant Grades
The Department of Health (DOH) inspects about 24,000 restaurants throughout New York City each year to monitor compliance with City and State food safety regulations. Since July 2010, restaurants have been required to post letter grades showing sanitary inspection results. Restaurants with a score between 0 and 13 points earn an “A”, those with 14 to 27 points receive a “B" and those with 28 or more receive a "C". This map shows the location or each Bronx restaurant and it’s most recent DOH inspection result.
