According to ABC 6, a restaurant boasting a big seafood buffet catches the eye of the health department. And, The Clean Plate Award goes to? An iconic steak house that just turned the big 6-0.
Investigator Tom Sussi is On Your Side with his weekly Dirty Dining Report.
Recent health inspections at Supreme Buffet and Hibachi Grill are far from supreme. Consequently, the Asian buffet at 1323 W. St. James Luther Way, gets the ABC 6 On Your Side Dirty Dish Award.
ABC 6 Investigators did some digging. Four inspections in four months with a total of 11 critical violations. In its latest inspection, Columbus Public Health uncovered five critical vioations, those include unsafe food temperatures.
On the day of inspection, cooked shrimp in the sushi bar was holding at room temperature. The seafood was tossed.
Other critical violations? Cooked chicken and pork in the refrigerator not date-marked.
And, a worker spotted handling sushi and putting on gloves, without first washing their hands.
Some of them are repeat violations. The restaurant submitted a “plan of action” to the health department, outlining how it plans to correct the violations.
And now it’s time to present the coveted Clean Plate Award. This week’s recipient? Top Steak House at 2891 East Main Street. Six straight inspections, and not one critical violation.
Top Steak House just turned 60. To celebrate its anniversary, the restaurant is offering specials throughout the year. Reservations are highly suggested.
