New York’s Filthiest Fine Restaurants

New York's Filthiest Fine Restaurants

Slobs like you decide where to eat by consulting Yelp, but the monied classes rely on Le Guide Michelin Rouge, which rates restaurants by awarding stars. New York City’s Health Department rates restaurants too, according to hygiene, and eateries must post their sanitary inspection letter grades in their front windows. Gawker has noticed that some restaurants with high Michelin ratings have low health inspection grades. These include:

Danji
346 West 52nd Street
Michelin Stars: 1 (“A very good restaurant in its category”)
Health Violation Points: 48
Current Grade: GRADE PENDING

Gilt
455 Madison Avenue
Michelin Stars: 2 (“Excellent cuisine, worth a detour”)
Violation Points: 33
Current Grade: GRADE PENDING

GRADE PENDING” means restaurant lawyers are fighting the “eat here, throw up” rating.
