Restaurant inspections, The Albert

A neighborhood pub in Atlanta’s Inman Park recently learned the high price of repeat health code violations.

They cost double points the second time around.

The Albert, 918 Austin Avenue, failed a second routine inspection by tripping up on some of the same code violations as before.

“There were a few little things that we also got wrong the last time, so we had double points taken off. It wasn’t anything major. We corrected them on site,” said Manager Heath Horan.

The restaurant scored a 51/U, and had a 55/U in August. Points were taken off on both routine inspections for having food debris on the equipment, mold inside the ice machine and a few unwanted items were lying around the kitchen.

The inspector recommended a thorough detailed cleaning of the facility.

The grill, cook-line and fryer doors all needed cleaning. Cutting boards had debris build-up and were no longer cleanable. Shelves used to store clean utensils and equipment were dirty with food debris. All the coolers had heavy food debris inside and needed deep cleaning, the inspector said.

In other code violations, an employee handled sliced tomatoes with bare hands. Open beverage containers were on a food prep table near clean equipment and utensils. Multiple food containers in the refrigerator were not properly date-marked for disposal.

The Albert will be re-inspected and Horan said that should get the restaurant’s score back in the 90s. Its previous health score was 93/A.
