This week on DineSafe: Brick Street Bakery, Casey's, Castro's Fiestahan, MBCO Cafe, Miller Tavern, New Orleans Fast Food, Not Just Dim Sum, Spotted Dick

This week on DineSafe, The Spotted Dick was caught with an infestation (that's certainly a sentence you never want to hear). Sources say roaches were the main culprit for the two-day pub closure, though the DineSafe report indicates a handful of other health violations. Joining the Spotted Dick on the list of delinquents this week is New Orleans Fast Food (which has yet to accomplish a two-green-pass streak), Miller Tavern up at Yonge and Lawrence (with a surprisingly poor show), and Brick Street Bakery in the Distillery District (with an almost-equally poor report). Here are some of the DineSafe highlights this week.
