This week on DineSafe: The Red Room, Biryani House, Liberty Shawarma, and Miyako Sushi

Following the two closings last week, Miyako Sushi has also been shut down due to three crucial infractions, including failing to prevent an insect infestation. The Red Room on Spadina received a conditional pass this week, with lack of accurate thermometers and improper food safety procedures being the culprits. Biryani House got a yellow card as well, with failure to provide adequate pest control being the most unappetizing infraction. For the rest of this week's round-up, check out the list below:
