NY1 VIDEO: In July of 2010, the Department of Health began assigning letter grades to all city restaurants based on sanitation inspections, what you now know as the A, B or Cs in the windows of your favorite places to eat. NY1's Anthony Pascale filed the following report on July 28, 2010, the day the first grade was given out.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP:Today, the health department says that 41 percent of restaurants receive an A grade, up from 27 percent when the program began. And according to a department survey, 88 percent of New Yorkers take those A B Cs into consideration when choosing a place to eat.
