    And which one was the restaurant? We need to know the history of their performance. The restaurant’s name being publicly called out for such fault should be part of the penalty. This would set an example to the other establishments as well, and, believe me, they would hurry up to clean up their act. Your incomplete report makes your news appear more like gossip.
