Cru Bistro scores a perfect 100 on health inspection


Food for Thought Reporter

There are many variables involved in a health inspection, and as a result, it's stuff to get a perfect grade. It's made even more difficult for full-service restaurants like Cru Bistro, places where nearly 170 people can be seated, at Turkey Creek, where there latest health inspection grade is a 100.

Anna Cherry, the manager at Cru Bistro, took us through her kitchen explaining how hygiene, like proper hand washing, is drilled into everyone on staff.Cherry says, "A lot of us have chaffed hands, because we wash our hands constantly."  She also credits this to proper glove wear techniques during training.

Other parts of training she showed us was the check list constantly taken to show the temperatures of different foods, whether they have been cooked or are in the freezer.

"We test every cooler in the entire restaurant. We make sure we have proper storage and cooking temperatures, holding temperatures." Anna Cherry said. When I asked if it was an ongoing process, she replied, "It's an all day, every day process."

This process is to help each staff member look out for each other and pitch in if there is a crisis. She credits her staff's quick thinking if something happens. "If someone makes a mess, there is someone there to jump in and clean up." Anna Cherry said.

Anna Cherry gives all the credit to teamwork by saying, "I couldn't be any prouder of my team and what we all put in together as a whole to make that happen."
