LAS VEGAS (AP) A Las Vegas Strip restaurant bearing the initials of celebrity financier Donald Trump was briefly shut down after health inspectors found violations including month-old caviar and expired yogurt.
DJT, the signature steakhouse at the Trump International Hotel, reopened Nov. 2 with a restored "A'' grade several hours after Southern Nevada Health District officials logged 51 violations during a routine inspection.
Thirty violations merit a "C'' grade, district spokeswoman Jennifer Sizemore said Friday.
Inspectors reported finding outdated, expired, unlabeled, mishandled and improperly stored food, according to a summary posted on the health district's website. The closure was first reported by KTNV-TV as part of a "Dirty Dining" segment focused on area restaurants.

Month-old caviar.... aka little fishies.... heh
Yuck. I’ll get my porterhouse somewhere else if I go to Vegas, thanks.
My job used to involve visiting a lot of businesses.
I can remember some restaurants would look really nice and then when you went into the back they were pretty bad. I was surprised they had passed inspection.
I also would sometimes find one to be immaculate.
I’ve got a buddy who is a salesman for a food supplier.
He has some great intel on local restaurants, and as you say, you can’t always tell by the serving side of the operation.
Methinks Trump’s restaurant was singled out, gee I can’t imagine why.
It would be nice to have inside info on restaurants cleanliness.
I know a guy who runs a huge food service which serves several thousand people at a time tho usually it is not that many. I can remember when that place used to have a case of food poisoning about once a Summer. The food was great but the cooks were not very clean.
After this guy took over, there was never another case. He was a fanatic about cleanliness.
how can month old caviar not have a stench about it?
“The food was great but the cooks were not very clean.”
Guess that’s part of the art ... ;-)
Maybe someone froze it?
eh, probably not...
good question... but it’s Vegas how can you smell anything over the crowds?
Then look at the bathrooms. If they are out of soap or paper towels or the bathrooms are not clean, then you can bet the filter basket on the dishwasher only gets emptied when it's full.
I've worked in a lot of restaurants, I'll eat in very few.
Inspectors are coming soon to a GOP donor-owned business near you.
(Barack-O -Claus knows if they’ve been naughty).
The Donald to the restaurant manager “You’re FIRED!”
If they’re out of soap or paper towels then the employees’ hands aren’t clean from bathroom visits, either. An absence of hot running water in the bathroom sink is a problem, too.
I too have gotten to where I will not eat out any more than I have to. When I do, I try to be very courteous to the waitress etc.
That was my first thought, too.
As for month-old caviar, it kind of depends how it was kept, I should think. Sealed jar in an icebox?
If I could afford to put caviar in my refrigerator these days, I wouldn't be in any hurry to throw it out.
There was one store on my route a discount grocery chain I think it was called Super Foods that was even worse OMG, I wouldnt buy Rat Chow from that dump.
The cleanest stores I ever called on were Giant, a Maryland chain. They were very well run and very clean, exceptionally clean and thats where I shopped when I lived in Maryland.
That means they found one can of outdated caviar....which may not necessarily be unusable, a frozen package of something with a rip in it and a partridge in a pear tree.
What a joke....
I remember a bar in Western Kansas. I actually closed it down.
It did not look particularly good in any way but I was a bit shocked when I went to the back. There was a beer tap which actually looked nice but on the other side was just a large bucket like container, open to the air tho it was in a cooler.
There was several dead insects inside the bucket.
I travel a lot and there are so many places I go where I bring my own food because I will NOT eat at any of the establishments. Be they restaurants or grocery store food service.
A friend and I exchange notes on places we will eat at and it usually starts with...well, I didn’t get sick there. Doesn’t matter if it’s a high end place or a ‘dive’.
And I agree...you can usually tell about sanitation by taking a trip to the bathroom. If it’s not clean...I’ll just have a drink and then go w/o any food.
Re Trump...he’s a loud mouth jerk...but I’m not going to blame him for the restaurant in Vegas. It’s not like Trump is a chef. He just licenses his name.
