The NYC Health Department rates restaurants and provides each with an inspection grade. Their mobile app gives you access to a list of 24,000 city restaurants with the ability to find each based on their grade and detailed inspection reports. The app free and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Inspections are performed each year and are based off compliance with food safety rules for food handling, food temperature, personal hygiene, vermin control and more. Each violation of a rule earns a certain number of points. At the end of the inspection, the inspector totals the points, and this number is the restaurant’s inspection score—the lower the score, the better. Scores are then converted to A, B, or C grades with an A, being the best you can get.
