Report: Mediterranean restaurant in Gwinnett fails health inspection

A Mediterranean restaurant in Gwinnett County failed a health inspection this week after the inspector noted multiple violations, including dishes on the floor blocking the handwashing sink.

Taziki’s Mediterranean Café in Suwanee scored a 49/U on Wednesday, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health.

The report states that a county health official noted that the person in charge was not able to maintain active managerial control over the restaurant and its employees.

There was also raw salmon stored above partially cooked potatoes and unwashed produce stored above already washed produce.

The inspector also noted that the restaurant’s health score was not posted at the drive-thru window, dishes were stacked wet and various employees were wearing watches and fit bands while preparing food.

General manager Amity Mulvey told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that a health inspector is slated to revisit the restaurant for a follow-up inspection within the next week.

“I just want everyone to understand that it’s not a food or cooler issue and that people are not going to get sick eating here,” she said.

The restaurant also failed a health inspection last August but passed its re-inspection a week later.
