1818 Club Permit Suspended After Scoring 67, Later Reinstated

The dining club was reinspected a few hours after its suspension following an inspection on Jan. 31. The restaurant scored a 100 upon reinspection.

Food service at the prestigious members-only 1818 Club located on the top floor of the Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce in Duluth was halted for a few hours Thursday (Jan. 31) after the dining club failed its food inspection, and its food service permit was suspended.

1818 Club Manager Jeff Campione reported Friday, Feb. 1, that the club was reinspected three hours after the suspension at its request. “We have a health score of 100 hanging on the wall right now,” he said. Food service resumed at the club Thursday following the improved score.

Also, the traditional late-night after party hosted at 1818 Club following the annual Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce Dinner at the Gwinnett Center Feb. 1 was scheduled to occur at the club as planned.

Food inspections are conducted regularly by environmental health specialists from the Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Departments of Health.

The food service inspector gave the 1818 Club a 67-U score when it was inspected Jan. 31 based on multiple violations.

I wonder if a 3 hour special "re-inspection" is standard, or was a phone call made based on who eats there ??? I remember reading a few weeks ago that one restaurant in Dacula was shut down for 3 days. also it's kinda strange that the last 3 scores were, 59,84, then a 67. and then WOW, a quick clean and 3 hours later, BANG a 100.... how impressive...My suggestion is if your going to butter the bread of the one that feeds you, at least keep the score under 95 to make the story

Like you said, we've had restaurants end up closed for far longer periods. Three hours seems like pretty fast work to me.

Folks, some of you have yet to learn that the seat of county government is not at 75 Langley Drive. It is at 6500 Sugarloaf Parkway. Whether you like it or not, it is something that you are going to have to live with.
