1818 Club's Food Service Permit Reinstated After Brief Suspension

The club in the Gwinnett Chamber building was reinspected a few hours after its suspension following inspection Jan. 31. It's 67-U score improved to a 100.

Food service at the prestigious members-only 1818 Club located on the top floor of the Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce in Duluth was halted for a few hours Thursday (Jan. 31) after the dining club failed its food inspection, and its food service permit was suspended.

1818 Club Manager Jeff Campione reported Friday, Feb. 1, that the club was reinspected three hours after the suspension at its request. “We have a health score of 100 hanging on the wall right now,” he said. Food service resumed at the club Thursday following the improved score.

Food inspections are conducted regularly by environmental health specialists from the Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Departments of Health.

The food service inspector gave the 1818 Club a 67-U score when it was inspected Jan. 31 based on multiple violations that included a waiter handling toast with his bare hands, food not properly date and time marked, and expired food that had not been discarded. An employee was observed by the inspector handling dirty dishes then clean dishes wearing the same gloves. These violations were corrected on-site, according to the restaurant inspection report.

What! This community does not have a mandatory 24 hours closure? Special rules for special locations? If the Club could get the score from 67 to 100 in a few hours, why wasn't it near the 100 score to begin with?

Because many of the violations are of this type:"Employee drinks in a glass cup with no lid or straw stored on prep table and in disposable cup with lid and no straw." "Employees changing gloves to handle ready-to-eat foods without washing hands before putting on new gloves. Can be fixed in minutes, right?
