Trump steakhouse in Las Vegas fails inspection
AP viaYahooNews ^ | Nov 16, 2012 | KEN RITTER

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Inspectors reported finding outdated, expired, unlabeled, mishandled and improperly stored food, according to a summary posted on the health district's website.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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It’s just not restaurants. Many moons ago I had a job working for a national brand ice cream company as a merchandiser/sales rep. As such I called on grocery and convenience stores and brought product from the back room freezers. I can’t even begin to tell you what I observed walking through the back rooms of some grocery stores. The Safeway stores were usually pretty clean and neat and orderly but the A&P (later Super Fresh) stores were spotty – some were fairly clean but others smelled like a dumpster in late July, the floors were actually “sticky”. In one store I saw boxes of chicken sitting outside the meat cooler - the ice it was packed in had completely melted and bloody chicken water was all over the floor and had run across the floor to the other side of the back room, soaking boxes of dry goods that were not sitting on pallets but on the floor, the smell was awful – gross!

There was one store on my route – a discount grocery chain – I think it was called “Super Foods” that was even worse…OMG, I wouldn’t 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 that’s where I shopped when I lived in Maryland.

It was shut down for several hours !!!!!!! and was given back its "A" rating.

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.

The bacteria on the menus far outweigh the month-old caviar. Research points to nasty! Have the waiter/waitress read the menu to you!

The place I mentioned earlier where every Summer we all got food poisoning was also a place I worked during the Summers.

All the cooks were Black. They were a nice bunch and as I said, turned out great food but I do blame them for the food poisoning. I remember one time I got it, I awoke during the night with my insides hurting. My roommate was already up and he asked if I had it too?

I asked what he was talking about and he said everyone had food poisoning. Within seconds I was on my way to the toilet.

Maybe a half hour later the retreat Dr. (we had a staff Dr. back then) was in the boys dorm recreation room passing out medicine out of gallon jugs. It contained heroin I was told. It did work but boy I was sick.

On the other hand, I ate at the training table at Troy University. We ate in the main dining room after everyone else had eaten. They would close the line and we would go through. We got the same food the students got plus a few extras such as steaks. These cooks were also Black but we never had a case of food poisoning there and we ate for 9 months a year.

I have never been a fan of turnips but they really knew how to cook them at Troy back then. They were delicious.

good thing they don’t inspect houses (sshhh not so loud). my kitchen wouldn’t pass in 20 seconds and if they ever watched me cook. i am very careful with thawing and handling fish and chicken but how many of you wash your hands BEFORE emptying the clean dishes in the dishwasher?

i am also old school and was brought up that a little dirt wouldn’t kill you but would make you healthier. i think some of the childhood ailments today are from too saniyary conditions.

I was just thinking. Neither I nor any of my 4 Brothers and Sisters ever got food poisoning from Mother’s cooking. That would cover around 18 years for each of us plus the many times we ate with her after we were grown.

Mother was very clean but you would think she would have messed up at least once. As near as I can tell she never did.

Round these parts...inspections are not that frequent....due to cut-backs in personnel...perhaps annually.

Don’t get me started on how filthy hospitals are...and lacking in common sense sanitary practices.

I can see why a little Union Member gave Trump some BS for attacking their Messiah. This story was carried nationwide by Yahoo who's owner is a rabid Zeroist.

So, we have local union inspectors and Worldwide Yahoo attacking Trump. Before long the Donald will disappear into a secret prison gulag. Mark my words, people will start disappearing anytime now!

Jesse Jackson admitted spitting in the Food served to White People when he worked in a Restaurant as a young man.

Nowadays, Blacks just Vote for the Commie who gives them other people’s stuff. It’s easier than having to get a job so you have the opportunity to spit in the Food.

Oooh, was that a racist comment? Check back with me when Romney gets ONE VOTE in Philly.

The Denny’s at the South end of the strip (near Circus Circus) is pretty good. Handmade burgers, friendly staff, the manager checked every table at least twice. This was last Wednesday afternoon.

Sure, it’s Denny’s, but it was a pleasant surprise, to say the least.

JMHO, ymmv.

Month old yogurt? Oh, the horror! Does this idiot inspector know anything about food and why expiration dates can be a joke? These are government employees. They do what they are told. These can also be highly corrupted people. The fact that this is Vegas just after a national election, and that the target is Trump - a loudmouth anti-Obama businessman - is all I need to know to be highly suspect of the charges.

Good thing no one *inspects* the stuff in the back of my fridge! Heh. I once had yogurt that was 6 months past expiration...it tasted fine.

The joke around here...is that the only time my fridge really gets a through cleaning....is when we have a power outage...so since our last *big* one....just B4 Halloween.......I’m all good for a while. :)
