Restaurant inspections, East Point Corner Tavern

Employee hand sinks at the East Point Corner Tavern weren’t being used during a recent health inspection, according to a Fulton County health official.

Both appeared to be “bone dry” during an afternoon inspection, she said. One had an ice scoop and a soap container in the basin, and the other had no available hot water.

The Fulton County inspector noticed the sinks after observing an employee switching tasks without washing hands. Also, a sink in the bar area had no soap or paper towels, she said.

Points were taken off, and the restaurant’s routine health score dropped from a 90/A to a 56/U.

East Point Corner Tavern, 2783 Main St., East Point, was also operating with an expired food permit. The restaurant was given 24 hours to renew the permit, which expired in June, or face closure. The restaurant was also given 30 days to obtain a certified food safety manager.

In other code violations, two coolers were not keeping food temperatures at safe levels. And some food items were uncovered and subject to contamination. Butter and chicken inside the coolers were not covered, and chicken was left uncovered on a cutting board.

The facility also needed cleaning. Walls were soiled with food debris, cooling racks next to the fryers had grease build-up and the freezer door had a mold-like substance on the gaskets, according to the report.

East Point Corner Tavern will be re-inspected in the next 10 days. A restaurant manager assured an improved score. “By the time she gets back everything should be up to code,” the manager said.
