DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Ali Baba's, Bar Burrito, Bloor Jane Restaurant, Bryden's, Greek Gourmet, Hue's Kitchen, Pita Mio

This week on DineSafe, very few restaurants were charged with dreaded "crucial" infractions. Call it a holiday gift, as most of the inspected restaurants managed to come out unscathed this week. Well, "unscathed" if you don't count the overall conditional pass. Perhaps Toronto Public Health inspectors were in merry, festive moods and easy on the assessment (let's hope not, for our collective sake), or else restaurants cleaned up in preparation for the new year ahead.

Yet, some spots didn't clean up enough, it seems, including a couple Bloor and Jane-area diners, a few takeout places by Yonge and Wellesley, and a new spot for shawarma in Riverdale. Here are a few restaurants pegged with conditional passes this week.
