DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Liberty Shawarma, East Side Mario's, Riz Restaurant, Toronto Kosher, Cici's Pizza

There were lots of DineSafe inspections this week, and I'm happy to report there wasn't a single closure. But many conditional passes popped up in windows, including one for the newly opened Brawley Restaurant and Lounge. It was their very first inspection...so much for beginner's luck.

Rob Ford's behaviour was not the only thing in question on the Danforth this weekend. Hot Pot Cafe got itself a yellow card after getting dinged with five infractions.

Here's this week's DineSafe round-up.
