[Poll] Restaurant Letter Grades: Good or Bad?

NYC Restaurant Letter Grades

New York City has recently started requiring inspection letter grades to be posted prominently at its 24,000-plus restaurants.

We’ve had a similar system in Los Angeles since 1998, and quite frankly, I love it. (One New York-based friend even says it’s his favorite thing about dining in L.A… I guess the food itself isn’t as memorable!)

If there’s a restaurant I really like, I might still go there if they got a “B”… But really, almost every restaurant in LA has an “A” anyway, so it seems to me that the net effect is positive:

If restaurants want to stay in business, they’ll make sure they earn an “A.” Simple as that.

What do you think?
