On July 6 the New Hanover County Health Department told Portside Finer on Burnett Boulevard in Wilmington it will suspend the restaurant's permit in 30 days for "failure to provide and maintain adequate refrigeration for potentially hazardous foods required to be kept at or below 45-degrees." Problems with the temperature of foods in the prep cooler also cost portside diner five points. Two-and-a-half more points for foods stored uncovered in coolers. Two-and-a-half more because the dish sanitizing sink did not have enough sanitizer. Points also taken for glasses stacked wet. An 82 for Portside Diner. To Brunswick County and Tomo Japanese in Ocean Isle Beach. An inspector counted off for shrimp thawing in the prep sink and food stored in grocery bags. The staff also needs to make sure dishes, cups, pans, knives and utensils are clean before storing. Tomo Japanese scores 85. To Calabash and Sunrise Pancake House on Beach Drive. Five points off for storing food the wrong way and because it appeared the steam table was being used to reheat food instead of the stove. Points also taken because the dishwasher did not sanitize until it was primed. Eight violations in all and a score of 86 for Sunrise Pancake House. A couple of re-inspections in Wilmington. Starting at the Hilton Riverside, which scored 84.5 last month. This time around there are problems with cold foods stored too warm and accurate thermometers needed in the refrigerators. Six violations on the re-inspection but an improvement to 92.5. Lucky Star at 3922 Market St. scored 85.5 a couple weeks ago. A second inspection found employees were not using sanitizer and needed to do some cleaning. Still, a 10-point improvement to 95.5.
