Spirit of the Sound Maritime Aquarium 6-24-16

The Maritime Aquarium's Spirit of the Sound has fireworks night cruises around July 4.

Sometimes, at the end of a long hard work week, you just want to go for a boat ride.

So, beginning Fri., May 5, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is obliging.

The Aquarium is offering new “TGIF Cruises” each Friday at 6:30 p.m. Educators will be onboard to point out sights and wildlife, but there’s no structured program.

“These cruises are nothing more than a relaxing, 90-minute trip out to the Norwalk islands; a fun chance for families and friends to unwind during a Friday evening out on the water,” said Dave Sigworth, the Aquarium’s publicist.

These results of health inspections at four food-serving establishments in town were just released by the Darien Health Department.

Three establishments received ratings of “A,” the best ratings under the town’s system, and one received a “B” — essentially mediocre or middling ratings. No “C” ratings (the worst) were given out.

Most Recent Inspection Results

Health Certificate Frosty Bear 01-19-17

Town Health Department ratings certificates are supposed to be displayed prominently, like this one at the Frosty Bear Cafe at Darien Library.

Here’s an alphabetical list of the most recently released health inspection results (an explanation for each part of the list, including links, is just below the list).

Keep in mind that a food-serving establishment with a history of good ratings may occasionally get a poor inspection rating, occasionally the best do, and every restaurant normally gets a few things wrong (an explanation of how this list is put together is immediately below it):

—Darien Seafood Market — 1941 Post Road — Sept. 28 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 94

—Louie’s Italian Restaurant — 10 Center St. — Sept. 28 — Town Rating: B — State Score: 91

—Subway — 22-26 Heights Road — Sept. 28 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 96

—Sushi by Jay at Stop & Shop — 25 Old King’s Hwy. North — Town Rating: A — State Score: 97

Dates link to the food establishment’s inspection report referenced here (when available, sometimes it takes a while to get posted online), and Darien’s own A/B/C ratings link to a Web page showing several of the restaurant’s recent inspection ratings.

For restaurants and other food-serving establishments rated “C,” and for some others of interest to the public (like schools) additional information is given. When we provide that information here, then words within brackets (“[ ]”) have been added for clarity by Darienite.com; semicolons like this (“;”) separate individual comments by the inspectors. Each comment is about a particular violation that triggers a deduction of one or more points from a perfect state score of 100.

How Darien’s Restaurants Are Rated

Restaurants in town are rated under the Darien Health Department’s own A/B/C ratings system. Health inspectors also use the state health code regulations to score restaurants, with a perfect score set at 100, and demerits (of 1 to 4 points each) for various code violations.

The Darien system takes into account problems that are ongoing, so a restaurant scoring higher than others on the state scale may actually get a lower score on the Darien scale.

The “A”, “B” and “C” letter grades a restaurant gets in its last inspection will be prominent on these certificates, which must be posted where customers can see them, and you can use your phone and the “QR” code to the right of the letter grade to get to the department’s ratings website for more information.

 

You can find the past several inspection ratings under the Darien ratings system for food-serving establishments on this website, and now you can also find copies of inspection reports, including state health code scores in the same place.

Any establishment actually deemed unsafe can be closed by the town Health Department until violations are fixed. Town Health Director David Knauf says that has never happened in the time he’s been with the department.
