Cafeterias in Darien Public Schools passed the town Health Department's
inspections with flying colors in October after an inspector found minor
problems in some schools.
Darien High School and Holmes School
received perfect scores of 100 in the state scale, which deducts points
for every health code violation -- in other words, the inspector found
no violations whatever.
Restaurants in town -- which often have more difficult challenges, such as broader, changing menus and tighter kitchen spaces -- seldom get such a high
grade. (Here's the most recent set of town Health Department inspection results of Darien restaurants.)
other schools in town received one, two or several violations -- also
scores that nearly every restaurant manager in town would envy:
Tokeneke School, 7 Old Farm Rd. -- Oct. 2 State score: 99 Inspector's
remarks: "Dust buildup on and around air condition[er] unit; Very
clean, very good food protection, very good cold temp[erature]s. No hot
holding -- food in final stages of cooking."
