Two years after a rigorous expose by The Allentown Morning Call, the state Ag Department has finally relented and begun posting restaurant inspections online.
Just not very many.
Go ahead, try your luck at the Ag Dept website
I plugged in Fisaga, the place downtown that has had the most churn. No record.
Then I tried Stock’s on Second and The Firehouse, two of the oldest restaurants on the Row. You’d think … but again, nada.
Finally, I put in … The Spot. Which has been around forever. Nothing.
If the state Ag Department has really been inspecting restaurants and now the results are online, and they missed The Spot … whoa. Maybe it’s under some kind of Rendell Protection Plan.
