DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Victory Cafe, Izba Restaurant, Eskimo Tea House, Thai Express, Kothur Indian Cuisine

The good news? No closures this week. The bad news? Some great spots got conditional passes. Mary Browns Famous Chicken and Taters may become famous for an animal other than chicken. Their significant infraction was a failure to provide adequate pest control. Ew. Also, Thai Express got flagged with a yellow card. Maybe they have to focus less on the "express." They say that good things take time, right? Here's the weekly DineSafe round-up.
