Where Not To Eat: The Sanitary Violations of Cambridge

In New York City, there is a regulation that requires all restaurants to post their most recent health inspection rating on their windows. Since Cambridge has no such regulation, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the data.

Overall the 10 establishments (aggregating across all stores), with the most violations since 2013:

Establishment Name Number of Violations
Au Bon Pain 96
Spice Thai Cuisine 82
Ginger Exchange 65
Dunkin Donuts 63
Clover 62
Tavern in the Square 58
Sapporo Ramen 58
Whole Foods 56
Dumpling House 52
Starbucks 48
