One Market's Scarlet Box Of Shame: Michelin-Star-Studded Mystery Revealed!

It was with bated breath that I waited yesterday to hear SF Eater reveal which Michelin-star-studded San Francisco restaurant got slapped with the red box of shame according to CleanScores, the Health Department violations website. Eater reports that the average hygiene score among the 17 Michelin-starred restaurants in town is a squeaky-clean 97.3, with the one exception ringing in at 80. Among other violations, this entails:

Certain food that is not hot enough or cold enough; improperly stored food; dirty utensils/equipment and deteriorated walls/floor/ceiling.

The unlucky recipient of the scarlet box was none other than One Market. But look on the bright side: when you think of an 80 in terms of, say, a test at school, it's a low B, which isn't so bad, is it?
