Fined Dining

Restaurant owners must remedy health-code violations before their next inspection. If a violation is considered critical to public health -- for example, if the pantry is infested with rodents -- a followup inspection may be scheduled within a week or less. Restaurants that consistently fail to correct violations are subject to fines and can even be forced to shut their doors. Fines range from $50 to $1000 for each violation, depending on the severity of the violation and whether it was later corrected. During the past two years, the following Dade County restaurants were fined $1000 or more:
