In a news conference held in front of Café La Fonduta yesterday, Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx) revealed the [city's top 10 dirtiest restaurants], which, yes, include Café La Fonduta. But aside from these places to avoid, Klein announced he will be introducing legislation that would [grade restaurants A through F](http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2007/03/26/2007-03-26_give_our_filthiest_eateries_big_fat_f.html) according to cleanliness, and that restaurants would be required to display these report cards in their front windows. Klein said his office looked at 700 restaurants and discovered [56-percent of them failed inspections](http://www.nyssenate34.com/press_archive_story.asp?id=1074) due to [pest violations](http://www.nypress.com/20/9/informationagent/agent1.cfm). The city Health Department says it will consider the proposal, but that its current scoring system is more detailed. Ah yes, but how much simpler a reversion to elementary school grading would be! Intimidated by the current complicated state of restaurant evaluations? Try staying in and having a nice home cooked meal for a change. But before you head out for groceries, [here](http://www.nyssenate34.com/senate_update.asp?id=98)’s Klein’s list of NYC’s dirtiest supermarkets, aptly called “The Dirty Dozen.”
