On December 3, 2019, an inspection of UHall (BRKFST&CO and Dunkin' Donuts) located at 110 East 14th Street, and Third North located at 75 3rd Avenue, resulted in "A" ratings from the New York City Department of Health. The dining facilities received a combined total of 17 violation points (UHall, 12, due to the temperature of their heat lamps and a non-food related issue, and Third North, 5, for non-food related areas), all of which that are currently being addressed by NYU Eats.

On November 21, 2019, an inspection of Peet's Coffee located at 60 Washington Square South resulted in an "A" rating from the New York City Department of Health, receiving zero violations.
Upstein, Downstein and Kosher Eatery receive "A" rating
On November 14, 2019, a re-inspection of Upstein (Food Court), and inspection of Downstein and Kosher Eatery located at 5-11 University Place resulted in "A" ratings from the New York City Department of Health. The dining facilities received violation points related to non-food production areas (Upstein, 4; Downstein, 8; and Kosher, 2) that are currently being addressed by NYU Eats.
The Commissary, a prep and storage room used by Upstein and Kosher Eatery, was also inspected and received a "Pass". (Commissaries receive a pass/fail and not a letter grade.) The Comissary received 4 violations, all related to non-food production areas, which are currently being addressed by NYU Eats.
Rory Meyers College of Nursing Dining Facility receives "A" rating.
A November 1, 2019 inspection of the dining facility at the Rory Meyers College of Nursing, located at 433 First Avenue, resulted in an "A" rating from the New York City Department of Health. The site received 13 violation points, all related to non-food production areas and which are currently being addressed by NYU Eats.
Six NYU Eats dining locations were inspected this October by the New York City Department of Health.
Five, including Lipton Dining Hall, Marketplace at Kimmel, Jasper Kane Café, Starbucks, and Argo Tea, received “A” ratings. The sixth, Upstein dining facility, lost a total of 40 points in seven violation code categories due to supply storage issues. None of the points deducted concerned food handling or food safety. NYU Eats is currently working to make the adjustments the Health Department wants, at off hours and with minimal disruption to service. The “not yet graded” status allows for a chance to correct the issues before the re-inspection, which will happen relatively soon and will determine the grade we receive. Accordingly, NYU Eats will take steps to add additional millwork and fixtures at Upstein.
NYC DoH inspections are performed at NYU Eats locations randomly and on an ongoing basis. NYU Eats will keep the NYU community regularly informed about the results of inspections at NYU dining locations on the NYU Dining website. Inspection results and additional details are also publicly available on the Department of Health website.
