This week on DineSafe: Acme Burger, Brunchworks, Deli Cake Bakery, Kitchen Table, No Frills, Old York, Shawarma Fresh, The Homeway

This week on DineSafe, Shawarma Fresh on St. Clair took the lone failing grade. After receiving a conditional pass mere months ago, the midtown Shawarma shop was shut down this time for an unfortunate sewage backup. Ugh. On the plus side, though, many of the conditional passes handed out this week were free from "critical" infractions, which is the most serious of the three infraction categories. And the total infraction tally this week is also shorter than in weeks past. Glass half full, right? Here are some of the notable offenders on DineSafe this week.
