Inspector Comments:
SUMMARY SUSPENSION: for failing to minimize the presence of pests/ rodents and no DC government issued Certified Food Protection manager on duty. In order for license to be restored, a noncompliance re-inspection fee of $100 ( during normal business hours)or $400 ( for non-business hours) must be paid prior to request and all violations must be abated and approved by DOH.

I e-mailed the electronic copy of the restoration procedures. The person in charge refused to sign.

Please submit any questions / inquiries to the Area Supervisor Mrs. Jacqueline Coleman at food.safety@dc.gov for efficient response.
DC Health does not assign a grade, percentage, or rating for establishment inspection reports. We perform a pass-fail inspection. The amount of Priority, Priority Foundation, and Core violations are tallied at the top of each inspection report. DC Health also performs follow up inspections to ensure the violations which were cited on the initial report have been corrected.
