NYC's  Health Department inspects about 24,000 restaurants a year to monitor compliance with City and State food safety regulations.
Each violation earns a certain number of points. At the end of the inspection, the inspector totals the points and this number is the restaurant’s inspection score; the lower the score, the better.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
The following chart represents the results of 10 categories of restaurants divided in 5 categories of scores. The lower the score, the better.
We can see that all categories had the same pattern, and with the exception of one category, not one category had cases with scores between (121-150). These results certainly won't have an influence on your decision of what kind of food.
