Cer Te Finally Gets Their A From the DOH

Despite DOH vindication, Cer Te couldn’t help getting in one last upside down jab

It’s been one year since the DOH started giving out letter grades to restaurants in NYC, and to commemorate the milestone the Wall Street Journal has gone all Nate Silver on the data.  There are some interesting tidbits, and other sites are weighing in with their opinions, but we’re far more excited about the big DOH news that arrived in our inbox today.  “After a year of paying big bucks and sucking ass, we have finally received our duly earned “A” from the DOH.” Signed, Cer Te (on 55th btw. 5+6th).  You might remember Cer Te from such wonderful movies as “I Turned My B from the DOH Into Lemonade” and “Give Us a C and We’ll Get Even Angrier”.

Those grades didn’t seem to act as much of a deterrent for hardcore Midtown Lunchers, but it’s good to see that Cer Te’s letter finally matches the quality of their food.


  • See. Fix the DOHs stupid requirements and then ‘bam’ and A.

    Do you mean Nate Silver, not Nate Smith?

  • The DOH website still says C and they earned enough points in their last inspection on 7/15/11 to get a B. Hmmmmm

    they dont deserve congrats for getting a A grade they should be getting from the get go as a upscale deli kind of place… stop acting like children… keep your place up to par and churn ou the good food… no one cares about the whining and shenanigans… makes you look foolish.

    • I don’t know why you’re being so hostile in spite of the fact that they actually listened to us, manned the fuck up, and did the right thing.
