Violation Type Violation Category Violation Items Violation Locations Violation Problems Violation Comments
Critical Clean Sight/Touch-No Accum/Enc N/A N/A N/A I observed a dirty knife, a set of dirty tongs and a dirty hand held slicer hung up where cleaned utensils go. Staff need to be thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing utensils. Corrrected by doing such.
Critical Hot and cold holding N/A N/A N/A One of the prep table units was found holding product at 47* - 49*f on the top cold rail and inside the box. Do not use this unit until it is repaired and you verify it holds foods at 41*f or colder. Staff should have caught this if line checks were done properly. Tighten up your manager line checks. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify unit has been repaired and holding foods 41*f or colder.
Critical Reheating for Hot Holding N/A N/A N/A I observed one of the front line chefs re-heating leftover soups and sauces in a steam well warmer. Leftovers must be quickly re-heated to 165*f of more on the stove before stocking in steam well. Corrected by heating on stove. Product had just been brought out of refrigeration
Normal Clean Freq, Nonfood-Contact Su N/A N/A N/A I observed a mixer and food processor left dirty. Staff need to remember to clean and sanitize these units and not just clean the bowls. Also, the hood filters were dirty above the wood pizza oven.
Normal Controlling Pests N/A N/A N/A I observed a few drain flies at the bar. Have your pest company focus on drain fly mitigation in this particular area.
Normal Food labels N/A N/A N/A Please label your dry goods storage bins with common name of contents.
