Dinesafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Alex Farm Products, Amato Pizza, Chat Bout, Hollywood Gelato, New Ocean, Off the Hook, Slice of New York, The Big Guy's Little Coffee Shop

This week on DineSafe was a bad one for fish and meat. Alex Farm Products on Bayview was given a conditional pass after being found guilty of six infractions, and so too was New Ocean Supermarket on Markham Road and Off the Hook on Broadview with seven and 13 (!) respective infractions. There was also one red flag handed out this week, and the unfortunate prize went to The Big Guy's Little Coffee Shop in Etobicoke. Three green passes and then this — an insect infestation. Too bad for the Big Guy. Here are some of the offenders on DineSafe this week.
