Congratulations to Outback Queens Boulevard for having zero health violation points at its last inspection! Sambuca? Well, let's hope the family-style Italian restaurant does better the next time around.

Here is a list of New York City restaurant inspection scores for GFRAP-approved restaraunts and GIG-approved Outbacks, including dates of inspection. The lower the score, the better the inspection, with a score of 28 or higher constituting a failing grade.

I couldn't find inspection listings for Peters' and Bloom's (closed due to fire); so, with those eateries qualifying as unknowns, all the restaurants but Sambuca passed inspection.

For some perspective: In January, fancy restaurant Per Se scored a 22; in February, popular Artepasta scored a 52. For details about all of this and the most up-to-date results, check Restaurant Inspection Information at The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
