The New York City Health Department announced the final rules for a new restaurant letter grading system which goes into effect next month.
The grades, which run from A to C, reflect the sanitary conditions at restaurants and are required to be posted prominently in a front window, or on a door or wall that can be seen immediately as diners enter. Inspections will begin in late July, but it will take a full year before all of the city's 24,000 restaurants receive a grade, according to the city agency.
