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.

The department on Thursday released six reports of inspection visits from Oct. 26 to Nov. 2. All six received an “A” rating.

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.

Here’s an alphabetical list of the most recently released health inspection results:

—Bodega Taco Bar — 980 Post Road — Oct. 26 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 93

—Piedmont Associates — 152 Hecker Ave. — Nov. 2 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 99

—Starbucks — 815 Post Road — Nov. 2 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 97

—Subway — Darien North Interstate 95 rest stop — Oct. 31 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 96

—Uncle’s Deli — 1041 Post Road — Oct. 31 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 93

—Woodway Country Club — 540 Hoyt St. — Nov. 2 — Town Rating: A — State Score: 99

How Darien’s Food-Serving Places 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.

Health Department Health Inspections Health Reports

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.

Any establishment actually deemed unsafe can be closed by the town Health Department until violations are fixed.
