Boston Fish Supreme in northwest Atlanta received a failing food score of 46 out of 100 following an inspection that was prompted by a customer complaint.
The facility at 902A Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway is part of an Atlanta-based chain where the fried fish sandwich is the main draw. There are several of these restaurants in the metro area, including another one on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway.
At this location, a Fulton County Health and Wellness inspector found numerous code violations. There were roaches, uncovered garbage cans and a broken cooler.
The inspector said equipment, appliances and dry storage containers needed cleaning.
Employees weren’t washing their hands when changing duties or when re-entering the kitchen, the inspector noted. And they weren’t discarding their gloves when changing duties.
The hand sink was not available to the kitchen employees, and there were no paper towels at the sink, either.
Some products were old with expired dates and needed to be discarded. Other food items were not properly labeled with a name and date.
Frozen food was not being thawed properly, according to the report. Potentially hazardous food wasn’t being maintained at the proper temperature while in the cooler.
Manager Alfredo Fierro said Fulton County will return to re-inspect and he expected the restaurant’s score to improve. The previous score was a 79, which is a C.
Other restaurants getting a follow-up look, include Mizu Restaurant, 7951 Villa Rica Highway, Dallas. During a re-inspection May 10 the restaurant pulled up a previous failing score to an 81, which is a B.
Here’s a look at other recent inspection scores from the metro area.
