High-end Dunwoody steakhouse fails health inspection with score of 60

An upscale steakhouse in Dunwoody failed its health inspection this week after an inspector spotted moldy fruit and more than a dozen other violations.

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, located in the Perimeter Center area, scored a 60 on its inspection Monday.

The restaurant opened about a year ago at the bottom of a new office building on Perimeter Center Parkway in Dunwoody.

An inspector from the DeKalb Board of Health 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 report stated. Most of the violations were corrected on-site.

Del Frisco’s, based out of Houston, has several locations around the country and serves expensive cuts of steak and seafood.

A manager told Channel 2 Action News that the restaurant’s corporate office would provide a statement on the score. By Wednesday afternoon, the corporate office had not responded to Channel 2’s inquiry.

In April, the Dunwoody location scored a 93 on its health inspection.
