Recently, a very famous (multiple Michelin stars) and pricey restaurant in New York City was was penalized more than 40 points out of 100 by the local health department. It has had numerous bad health ratings in the past. Nevertheless, it remains very popular.
Hypothetically speaking, does a high Michelin rating or price outweigh the negative health rating? What if it restaurant was just a hole-in-the wall Chinese restaurant with delicious food?
Note: I've been informed that Chowhound policy forbids the use of actual restaurant names when it comes to health code violations.
