While searching for a restaurant on Yelp, I was curious to know what these letter grades of the Restaurant Inspection indicate.
So, I started to search for the top restaurants in NYC on ZAGAT because they are supposed to be the cleanest.
Pretty expensive and I am sure they offer very delicious dishes! (28-29 out of 30 must be good, especially if anyone is willing to pay that much!)
So, I parsed Yelp links, and merged with the inspection data from The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
I added the links of the top 10 restaurants on ZAGAT.
Please excuse the ugly user interface since it is only used by me. The purpose of this program is to keep a list of restaurants that I like, so that I can easily look up for phone numbers and addresses.
These violations were found from these top 10 restaurants:
1. Le Bernardin:
4. Gotham Bar and Grill
I could not parse data for this restaurant. Maybe, I could, but I did not attempt to.
5. Eleven Madison Park
I could not parse data again.
If I see more of results like this, then maybe I should find a different way to merge the data.
7. Sushi Yasuda
8. Gramercy Tavern
9. Peter Luger Steak House
10. La Grenouille
This concludes my finding. Thanks for reading!
