A legendary New York steakhouse with a recent "C" health grade was caught posting a much higher grade.

In a recent episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David and a group of his friends were disgusted when the health inspector changed a restaurant's health grade from an A to a C grade as David and his friends ate inside the restaurant.

Gallaghers Steakhouse Statement


A spokesperson for the steakhouse said they believed the C-grade was pending until a reinspection.

"We were of the understanding that there’d be a follow-up with a reinspection within 30 to 60 days before that rating was instated. “That was over a year ago and we have still not been reinspected,” the spokesperson said. “We apologize if there was a misunderstanding or any confusion."

New York City Health Department: Grade Not Pending

The New York City Health Department says the restaurant will be reinspected shortly but adds until the next yearly inspection the C-grade is final and not pending.
