CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) — First, an update from last week: Shem Creek Bar and Grill in Mount Pleasant scored a C grade January 9. Inspectors with the Department of Health and Environmental Control issue the grades.
Since then, the restaurant had 2 other inspections. Shem Creek Bar and Grill now has an A grade.
Restaurant Week continues, though, in the Lowcountry. Many downtown restaurants feature multiple course meals at a fixed price. One of the downtown restaurants featured during the event received a B health grade this week.
A DHEC inspector gave 39 Rue de Jean a B grade on January 17.
Some of the violations include improper cold holding temperatures. Cold foods are supposed to be kept at 41 degrees. The inspector found foods stored with a temperature higher than that. For example, escargot was at 58 degrees, raw salmon at 50 degrees, and raw beef at 47 degrees.
Other violations had to do with dish washing facilities not meeting expectations.
The inspector included in the report that a follow up inspection should be performed by January 25.
