SF restaurateurs dispute city allegations
San Francisco Chronicle

Amid a citywide crackdown to prevent restaurateurs from misleading consumers, San Francisco officials have released a list of 93 business owners who collected more money in employee health care surcharges in 2011 than they spent on health care for their workers. The Chronicle obtained the list under a public records request after City Attorney Dennis Herrera announced Friday that he would be going after at least 50 San Francisco restaurants for allegedly charging diners extra fees to cover the cost of city-mandated health care for workers and then pocketing much of the money.
