Recent restaurant inspections

We last posted a roundup of restaurant inspections in the neighborhood back on July 23. A number of people commented for and against us posting the inspections, some saying health inspectors always look for little things to dock restaurants on, while others felt it was a health and safety issue.

We’ve decided to list all restaurant inspections that receive any violation points. Many pass the inspection without any violations at all, so we won’t list those.

Restaurant inspections seem to happen in bunches, with sometimes several weeks in between any restaurants in our neighborhood being inspected. So, here are the inspections from the end of July through mid-September.

Mr. Gyros, 8411 Greenwood Ave. N., had a July 30 re-inspection after its inspection on July 7 netted it 70 points. The re-inspection docked Mr. Gyros only 5 points.

-Food worker card not available or current, new food workers not trained.

The 85th Street Café & Deli at 8420 Greenwood Ave. N. received 23 points on July 30:

– Inadequate hand washing facilities

– Food worker card not available or current, new food workers not trained

– Inadequate equipment for temperature control

– Single use and single service articles improperly stored, used

The Café has been closed for several weeks. Owner Timur Leno told us by email on Sept. 3 that it was being remodeled, but a PhinneyWood reader wrote in comments that he found a Craigslist ad listing it for sale. (That listing is no longer on Craigslist.) Leno has not returned another message to clarify. Last month Leno sold nearby Olive You, at 8516 Greenwood Ave. N. It is now called The Olive and Grape.
