The New York Times just launched a restaurant inspections map using NYC Open Data.
New York Health Department Restaurant Ratings Map
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene performs unannounced sanitary inspections of every restaurant at least once per year. Violation points result in a letter grade, which can be explored in the map below, along with violation descriptions. The information on this map will be updated periodically. For menus and reviews by New York Times critics, visit our restaurants guide.
