Track restaurant inspections - there's what in the wine bar?!

The Glens Falls District Office of the New York State Health Department has done its annual inspection of the various eateries at the Saratoga Race Course, and depending on where you eat, we have some good or bad news for you.

Overall, the news wasn't too bad, but the one shocking thing we found was that in the Wine Bar on the second floor insects and rodents were present - and the Health Department didn't consider that a critical violation. Other restaurants were given critical violations for things such as their food not being hot, or cold, enough, or for having toxic chemicals improperly labeled ... but we're a little wary of this vermin hanging out while we're drinking our Chablis!

See below for the eateries you probably want to avoid, the ones that are probably alright, and the ones that came off scot-free - those get the thumbs-up for all of you germophobes out there!
