NYC Health Department Launches ABCEATS, Its Redesigned Website for Looking Up Restaurant Grades

The NYC Health Department has launched a redesigned ABCEats, an online tool that allows New Yorkers to look up inspection results and letter grades for any of the approximately 27,000 restaurants in New York City. Users can search by restaurant name or by any of these categories: letter grade, type of food, borough, address and/or ZIP code. The redesigned site also features an interactive map and mobile access so that diners can easily find a bite to eat on the go. On mobile devices, users can also filter by distance from current location or display restaurants near the user using their device’s current location.

“For many of us, the holidays are a time to enjoy New York City’s culinary offerings,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. “Our enhanced ABCEats online tool makes it easier for New Yorkers to look up their favorite local spots to see if they made the grade.”

The Health Department began issuing letter grades to restaurants in July 2010. Currently, more than 90 percent of restaurants post “A” grades – and a similar percentage of New Yorkers approve of restaurant grading and use letter grades to make dining decisions.
