A Stir Over Plan to Grade New York City’s Restaurants, an article in New York Times that discusses the proposed plan for New York City restaurants to display the grade they receive from health inspectors. A plan that has been in effect for nearly a decade in Los Angeles is making its way to New York City. The results of random health and safety inspections in New York City restaurants will be posted in a form of a blue A, a green B, or a yellow C for customers to see. So far the plan raises mixed feelings among restaurant owners; however customers seem to be in favor of this grading system, which is a part of the food-safety program commissioned by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. This plan, also supported by the New York City Mayor Michale R. Bloomberg, is expected to be in effect in July 2010.
