This week on DineSafe: Astra Deli, Bach Yen, Creme A Sweet Buzz, Berries and Blooms, Gold Diamond, Hasty Market, Ristorante Roma, Times Square Diner

This week on DineSafe includes a York U shout-out and Danforth Avenue delinquent. First, it's Berries and Blooms over in York Lanes, which finds itself with nine health infractions after a year of relatively good inspections. I actually thought worse of you, Berries, so good job (until now, that is). Creme A Sweet Buzz at Danforth and Pape also deserves honourable mention this week, not so much for its four recent infractions, but for a conditional pass so soon after a closure back in May. Well done, all. Here's a look at some of the DineSafe notables this week.
