On Thursday, Mayor Ed Lee announced a partnership between the city and Yelp to post restaurant health scores on the site, according to the website Government Technology. In 2010, Mission Local’s Rigoberto Hernandez wrote an article revealing that restaurant owners did not have to tell the public if rodents were found in their establishments during a health inspection. This led to a series of articles by Mission Local, including an interactive map with health scores for restaurants around the city, and to a change in policy by the city of San Francisco. According to Government Technology:
Yelp is currently doing a limited release, so some San Francisco restaurants already have their city health inspection score listed in their Yelp review. On Korean restaurant Cocobang’s Yelp page, for instance, a government health score of 92 out of 100 from Nov. 12, 2012, is visible above the hours of operation, as is a link to the full restaurant inspection report.
And all San Francisco restaurants will have their health scores listed in the next couple of weeks, said Jay Nath, the city’s Chief Innovation Officer. Data from New York City and Philadelphia also is expected in coming weeks, according to a press release from Lee’s office.
