According to the NYC Health Department the scores pertain to the letter grades with the following breakdown. “Restaurants with a score between 0 and 13 points earn an A, those with 14 to 27 points receive a B and those with 28 or more a C.”
At the current moment, BiteScore caters only to the five boroughs of New York City which include Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. We do plan on expanding to other cities. Feel free to contact us and suggest your city to be next.
This filters all the restaurants in our current database so that the restaurants with the lowest number of health infractions are displayed first. Therefore you should see the restaurants that received an A first, followed by those with a B grade, and finally those that have received a C.
