Toronto restaurant known for its brunch nailed with 10 infractions by health inspectors

A restaurant chain in Toronto was recently issued a conditional pass notice at one of its locations by health inspectors after they found several infractions. 

Roses New York Restaurant, located at 135 Fort York Blvd. also operates two other locations in North York and Richmond Hill. The chain's downtown location was flagged by health inspectors on Aug. 9 after they detected 10 infractions — nine of which were significant and one minor. 

The restaurant serves up an extensive breakfast menu with plates like eggs Benedict, omelettes, pancakes, French toast, and waffles, as well as mains like burgers, pizzas, and kebabs. 

The significant infractions included failing to keep "toxic substance in compartment separate from food," and failing to maintain handwashing stations with liquid soap and paper towels. 

The minor infraction involved sanitary conditions in the food-handling room. 

The full list of infractions is available on the DineSafe website

Back in February, the restaurant passed its health inspection with no infractions observed, so it shouldn't take staff too long to address all the concerns highlighted by inspectors. The restaurant will remain open for service and will be reassessed again by inspectors soon.
