A high-end Dunwoody steakhouse easily passed a follow-up health inspection Tuesday after receiving a failing score last week.
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, located in the Perimeter Center area, scored a 93 during the reinspection, according to the DeKalb County Board of Health. Last Monday, it got a failing score of 60, after an inspector spotted moldy fruit and more than a dozen other violations.
Del Frisco’s, based out of Houston, has several locations around the country and serves expensive cuts of steak and seafood. The restaurant advertises a sophisticated dining experience with a wide selection of wines.
“It is important at Del Frisco’s that the highest safety measures related to the quality of food, cleanliness and overall experience are followed. This restaurant has always maintained the highest measures of sanitation and safety,” Keith Beitler, the executive vice president and COO of Landry’s Inc., said in a statement. Landry’s acquired Del Frisco’s earlier this year.
“On the last inspection, we did not adhere to our strict standards and unfortunately let our customers down, even though all violations were immediately corrected on-site during such inspection. I can assure everyone, we will never have another issue again, and am pleased to report that the restaurant received its customary A inspection on the most recent health inspection report,” Beitler said.
The steakhouse opened about a year ago at the bottom of a new office building on Perimeter Center Parkway in Dunwoody.
Last week, an inspector from the DeKalb health board noticed raspberries with large amounts of a “mold-like substance,” according to the inspection report. Two containers of milk were also past their expiration dates.
Shrimp, raw chicken and cooked lobster were uncovered in a walk-in cooler, and several food items were not cooling properly, the failing report stated. Most of the violations were corrected on-site.
Del Frisco’s received just a few minor violations during the follow-up inspection. In April, the Dunwoody location also scored a 93 on its health inspection.
