This week's lone low performer is Dixie Grill and Pool at 116 Market Street in downtown Wilmington. The restaurant lost two points for rodent droppings found in the utility storage closet. More points off one cooler was holding food at 55 degrees while another was at 50 degrees. Both above the 45-degree maximum. All spray bottles need to be labeled, and several things including the cooking utensil drawer, shelves for glasses and the bottom of the refrigerator need cleaning. 81 for Dixie Grill.
A regrade for K-38 Baja Grill at 5410 Oleander Drive in Wilmington. The problem with flies in the kitchen has been resolved. But a couple of repeat offenses from last time including items stored wet and five points off for pans, skillets, plates and bowls stored dirty and the beverage dispenser nozzle in the bar still needs cleaning. It was an 81-point-five last time around. Nine days later, K-38 scores a 90.
Just one restaurant on this week's Kitchen Cops high performers list. A New Hanover County health inspector says India Mahal needs to make sure the mop bucket does not block the handsink and not to store things on the floor. But the violations were not enough to keep the Wilmington restaurant from scoring a perfect 100.
