Brooklyn restaurants, along with all restaurants in New York City, are being rated by the New York City Department of Health. As of July 2010, restaurants are required to prominently display these ratings. Here's how to find "A" graded restaurants in Brooklyn, how to read the NYC restaurant ratings, and where to learn more about the New York City Department of Health's grades for restaurants in Brooklyn.
What Do the Grades Mean?
The NYC Department of Health scoring system is based on points that are given during health inspections of a restaurant's facilities. The more points, the worse the health practices of that restaurant.
- A equals 0-13 points
- B equals 14-27 points
- C equals 28 or more points
