Before you eat, inspect the restaurant! All New York City restaurants on a map, color-coded to reveal the grade provided by the health department. (Green is good; red is bad.) Use your current location to see a map of the immediate area or search for your favorite place. Click through to read a history of its inspections and health violations, then decide to skip dinner, maybe.
Find the nearest A-rated Chinese restaurant, or see all the coffee in Queens, White Castles in the Bronx, or Russian restaurants in Brooklyn.
Fastest restaurant inspection, all info on your device, no Internet access needed. Weekly updates available.
