Restaurants Get New Inspection System
Your favorite Charleston restaurant will have a new color-coded system for food inspections. The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department unveiled its new rating system on Friday that swaps the old grading system for new colors and words like "fair" and "excellent. And restaurants have to post their rating near the front entrance so the public can see it walking in. And starting Thursday, the ratings will be posted online. It may take a year for all of the restaurants in Charleston to be inspected.
