A Perimeter Mall food court restaurant was advised to do a better job cleaning and call an exterminator after a DeKalb County health inspector observed several roaches throughout the facility.
In particular, dead roaches were found throughout the kitchen of Bourbon Street Cafe. The inspector told management to clean the floors of all grease and water, and have the facility professionally exterminated at least twice a month. The floors and walls in the kitchen need to be cleaned daily, the inspector said.
Bourbon Street Café was given a 62/U on the routine inspection.
In other violations, employees were sloppy about following hand-washing procedures.
One employee was cutting chicken with bare hands. The meat was discarded. Another employee touched a trash can then continued to wash dishes. An employee rinsed gloved hands in the wrong sink instead of taking off the gloves and washing with soap in the hand sink.
Also, foods were not stored properly in the cooler, and some green beans, rice and chicken were not being held at a hot enough temperature.
A restaurant employee said they could not comment on the inspection. Bourbon Street Cafe will be re-inspected and must receiving a passing score or face voluntary closure. The restaurant was shut down briefly a year ago after posting consecutive failing health scores.
In other news, three recently featured Gwinnett County restaurants improved their health scores upon re-inspection. These are: Mike’s Mexican Grill, 2522 Cruse Road, Lawrenceville, 76/C; Nanoom Togo, 3312 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Duluth, 82/B; Yuka Roll and Pho, 1197 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee, 89/B.
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
