DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Bagel World, BruDa, CJ Lunch Box, Gino's Pizza, Nora Shawarma, Oishi Japanese Restaurant, Sassafraz, Vaticano

This week on DineSafe, lunch takes a major hit. First, it's up to North York, where Bagel World's classic and beloved lox and cream cheese is tarnished by a record of 13 violations. Then, it's down to CJ Lunch Box, which continues to be remarkably well priced, though now boasts a conditional pass. Gino's Pizza, Nora Shawarma, Oishi and BruDa, too, failed to acquire the all-clear, as did two, rather surprising Yorkville hot spots. Here are some of the places that made DineSafe's conditional list this week.
