Gross Out: Bad Bathroom Etiquette at Quilted Bear

By Amy Silverman The Quilted Bear on Scottsdale Road has had its share of run-ins with Maricopa County restaurant inspectors lately. Several recent reports reflect a "No Award" rating, and the most recent was pretty bad. The worst of the litany of complaints:

OBSERVED CHEF ENTER EMPLOYEE RESTROOM WITH GLOVES ON AND RETURN TO COOK LINE TO HANDLE READY TO EAT FOOD WITH SAME GLOVES. INSTRUCTED CHEF TO WASH HANDS AND CHANGE GLOVES.

'Nuff said.
