Restaurant inspections, Wasabi Grill

Wasabi Grill, an Atlanta restaurant known for its Japanese and Korean cuisine, recently rebounded to its normal high-level food safety level, according to reports.

The family owned eatery located at 398 14th St. received an 85 (B) on a second follow-up exam. It’s first follow-up score of 51 (U) resulted from repeat violations that included non-food and food related issues, the report showed. Repeat violations weigh more heavily on scores because double-point deductions are made, pulling down results.

Owner Justin Ahn explained that the restaurant works to go beyond the standards, noting that it has since corrected the short list of infractions that settled it in the B-range. Tougher standards began to be implemented last year – during a time when Wasabi scored a 95 (A). The regulations, however, were a test to many restaurants – even upscale ones – and forced them to be more detailed about food safety procedures.Across metro Atlanta
