Restaurant Grades: "C Is for Chinese"
LAist offers a remedial glimpse into the Who and How of those restaurant letter grades posted by the county's Department of Public Health. Writer Caleb Bacon explains that, when he takes his Back East friends to a San Gabriel Valley restaurant, they "conclude C is for Chinese." He sets them straight and advises readers to check the DPH's Web site to determine exactly why a restaurant's been closed or if an establishment's "B" grade is a high B or a low B.
It reminds one of the scene in the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, in which Donald Sutherland's health inspector character busts a San Francisco restaurant as he tweezers a rat turd that the chef has just identified as a caper.
