This week on DineSafe: Cake House, Canton Chilli, Lemongrass, Mad Dog, Menalon, Paully's, The Spoke Club, Tortilla Flats

This week on DineSafe saw a surprising new addition: the Spoke Club. While conditional pass-recipients such as Canton Chilli and Lemongrass are no stranger to the yellow flag, the Spoke Club received its first less-than-stellar review. An inspector found the swanky supper club guilty of 10 infractions, none of which included making non-members feel bad about themselves. On a similar note, Tortilla Flats got its first conditional pass after years of clean inspections, which coupled with the latest bout of concrete falling from the Gardiner probably means that this city is going to hell. Here are some of the notable mentions of DineSafe this week.
