High Number of Flushing Restaurants Have Low Health Dept. Grades: Report

Sept. 18, 2019 By Allie Griffin

Flushing and Corona have a high number of restaurants with low health department ratings in comparison to other Queens neighborhoods, according to a new report.

About 13.8 percent of North Corona’s restaurants have a B or C grade and 10.7 percent of Corona’s restaurants have a B or C grade, while 12.4 percent of Flushing’s restaurants have a B or C grade according to the report published Monday by Renthop.

Ozone Park has the worst restaurant ratings in the borough, with 18 percent of its total number restaurants having a B or C grade. None of the Lindenwood-Howard Beach area’s 51 restaurants have B or C grades, making it the best.

Renthop also looked at restaurants’ health code violations, including violations related to mice and roaches which have increased in recent years. Queens saw the largest increase with 3,138 violations in 2018, up 70.5 percent from 1,841 in 2017.

The report is based on data from New York City’s restaurant inspection results from 2016 to this month, September 2019.
