DineSafe Toronto

This Week on DineSafe: Amaya, Cafe du Lac, Eduarda's BBQ, Obama Cafe, Remy's, River Tai, Supermarket

This week on DineSafe, we learned that some yellow signs appeared (albeit briefly) in Kensington Market. First off, Supermarket, everyone's favourite place to line up out in the cold on a Friday night, garnered four Toronto Public Health visits in five days, only to shed its conditional pass on the last. Then there's Salsas Mexican Grill, which was going strong with six straight passes since 2010, nabbed with improper maintenance of food surfaces, utensils, and/or equipment. Bummer to ruin the record.

Speaking of record, Amaya is here on DineSafe again, but this time it's the express outlet in Leslieville that is charged with a variety of infractions. Out in Etobicoke, it's our Quebec-style bistro now under the microscope, along with a cafĂŠ on the Danforth in ode to America's 44th president, and a spot in Yorkville that's buzzing in the summertime.

Here are a few notable spots that made DineSafe's conditional list this week.
