Ever wonder what goes on in the kitchen of your favorite restaurants?

This is a snapshot of inspections that were conducted at Tampa Bay restaurants on February 14, 2014.

Each restaurant is shown in the slideshow above. The total number of violations the restaurant received is shown in the plate on the left side of the slide. Some details from the inspection report are listed below the slide.

Inspectors from Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation conducted the inspections. The department cited violations of Florida's sanitation and safety laws, which are based on the standards of U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Food Code.

While most establishments correct all violations in a timely manner (often during the inspection), the division's procedures are designed to compel compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administration action or closure when necessary, according to the Florida DBPR website.
