It’s a lot of fun to walk the streets of larger cities, look at the menu, the prices and the atmosphere from the outside. Perhaps, like me, you look for stickers on the windows from notable travel sites. All of this goes into your decision making to enter and enjoy the evening dining out.
Fortunately, now you can add excellence in food safety and “Dine Out with Confidence” by looking for the DiningGrades.com A+ Window Decal.
Cuisine is important. Price is important. Atmosphere is important. But food safety excellence is absolutely critical and, until now, there was no universal way to know the food safety history of a restaurant. DiningGrades.com has taken away that mystery.
Thousands of window decals have been sent to independent restaurants in eleven major cities in the USA: Chicago, Dallas, Houston, LA, Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, NYC, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC. Look for our decal in these great cities! Watch for more to come.
Our grading system is unique.
- Our grade is universally understandable and not just a numerical score.
- Our grade is based upon a 36-month history.
- Our grade is standardized across the USA, Canada and the UK.
Our window decals are given to independent restaurants and provided through funding from DiningSafetyAlliance.org and its Sponsors. The Decal cannot be purchased. The Decal must be earned. It must be earned and renewed annually. A restaurant can earn an A+ Window Decal by achieving a 36-month historical health department food inspection of an A.
Health departments in many cities require the posting of the last inspection. We applaud this requirement and model from it. You might see that posting in several of the above cities. This will continue to be valuable information. Unfortunately, it is not universally, conspicuously posted, represents a very limited moment in time and definitely is not nationally standardized.
DiningGrades.com builds on the dedicated work of health department inspectors. Together our goals overlap. We seek to:
“Provide diners in the USA, Canada & U.K. information need to Dine out with Confidence”; and restaurants what they need to earn an A+ in food safety.”
