Restaurant inspections, Anis Café and Bistro

A French bistro in Buckhead was given notice of a court summons after refusing to close for failing a second routine health inspection.

Anis Café and Bistro, 2974 Grandview Ave., scored a 61/U on the routine inspection because of repeat violations of not storing foods properly to protect against contamination.

Management was asked to voluntarily close the facility until it passes a follow-up inspection, but instead chose to keep the restaurant open and pay a fine. The inspector said the facility will be cited for court.

A day later, a manager at Anis Cafe said they were anticipating another inspection and still “had a few little things” to get ready. Repairs were needed for the dishwasher, which wasn’t sanitizing correctly during the routine inspection.

Points were taken off because food was stored uncovered, again. The inspector said the only food items that can be left uncovered are prepped items on the serving line.

In other repeat violations, raw meats and eggs were improperly shelved in the cooler and subject to cross-contamination. Some prepared food items in the cooler had not been marked for disposal. Other food containers were not labeled for identification.

Also, containers of cold food on the serving line had been placed on top of ice instead of being submerged to ensure the entire container is kept cold.

Anis Cafe and Bistro scored 65/U on a routine inspection last September, then pulled it up to a 91/A on a follow-up inspection. Fulton County requires closure of food service facilities that fail two consecutive routine health inspections within a year.
