THE BRONX - Approximately 250 restaurants have now completed New York City's new two-step process for sanitary inspections, and a tally of their scores show that many are acing the test.

A new summary from the Health Department shows that 80 percent of the 250 restaurants to complete graded inspections have earned "A" or "B" grades.

Nearly half earned an "A" for their sanitary conditions and food safety practices.

Johnny Sime, owner of La Roka Restaurant in Soundview, says he's ecstatic his eatery got an "A" grade after getting a "C" grade in a previous health inspection. Sime says the high grade brings the restaurant credibility with its customers.
