Eva Longoria's female-focused steakhouse has closed less than two years after opening in a swanky shopping center on the Las Vegas Strip.
Officials with parent company Landry's say SHe by Morton's - which served petite steaks for the ladies at around $36 - shut down effective Sunday.
Company executives did not immediately return messages seeking further explanation of the closure.
The steakhouse, located at 3720 Las Vegas Boulevard, ran into trouble last month, when the Southern Nevada Health District temporarily closed it.
April 22, health inspectors found 32 food safety violations, mostly related to keeping food at proper temperatures and maintaining accurate thermometers.
A follow-up was conducted one week later, resulting in a slightly better score of 21 demerits.
However, officials ordered that the restaurant close until the violations were corrected.
About one day later the eatery reopened with a grade A from the health district, which it held for the month of May until it shut its doors for good over the weekend.
Longoria, 39, partnered with Morton's steakhouse to open SHe in late 2012.
The Las Vegas Sun previously said it evoked a 'feeling of opulence with rich textures of alligator, cork, mirrors and crystals, embossed metallic wall coverings and rich dark fabrics.
'Decorative, internally lit screens are spread throughout the restaurant giving the space a touch of modern art deco design.'
It gained a three-and-a-half star rating on the restaurant review website Yelp, with one happy customer deeming it 'a great steakhouse with fun trendy twist.'

I think Rush Limbaugh was talking about this place
Longoria is an attractive woman but an idiot liberal.
So basically, eating at Longoria’s restaurant is the same as sleeping with her, you’ll end up chalk full of disease..wait was that uncalled for
Well, if there’s one way to draw in female customers, it’s lax food standards.
How hard can it be? You have to be either really stupid or really cheap, probably both in this case to have this happen. I ran food operations for close to twenty five years and never even had a Health Inspector question my operations, let alone shut me down!
So...Apparently she did learn one thing from Frenchie Tony Parker, HOW TO FLOP!!!!
how much of her money was in that? or was she just a front-person for the publicity?
Women love E-coli?
Because nothing screams “feminine” like puking your guts out from food poisoning...
That’s what happens whenya hire illegal alien labor!
Illiterates from Oaxaca haven’t heard about the Health Code...who knew?
“Eva Longoria’s female-focused steakhouse has closed less than two years after opening in a swanky shopping center on the Las Vegas Strip.”
I never quite saw the appeal of the “high end dining” trend in Vegas. That is, in a town where you could get first rate prime rib dinners for next to nothing and lobster tails big enough to feed three people, I never saw the point of having a Spago’s or some other trendy/haute cuisine joint.
Then again, I’m sure Spago’s is pulling in more money a month than I ever will see, so there’s that, too. LOL.
The decor sounds hideous.
Is this steak?
Smells like fish.
Hey!!! No picking on TP....
Spurs better wake up.
Isn’t her first name really Evil?
Gonna go 7. No road wins for either.
That’s one way to watch your girlish figure: explosive diarrhea.
TP, you said it, he flops around like a cat playing with a roll of toilet paper, but Ginobli is worst. I think it must be the way pop coaches these men/boys.
Houston Rockets fan, so the seasons over for me.
Who taught Duncan, well, the Admiral, of course. Who taught the Admiral, HAKEEM OLAJUWON, that’s who.
Living in the past but the 94, 95 season Rockets and Spurs went 7 and nobody won at home, man what memories.
I am sure her involvement was nothing more than choosing the decor... Morton’s probably approached her and wanted to user her brand to try this little experiment out, nothing more.
I doubt she had any more to do with the operation of this restaurant than O did in ordering the the troops to take Bin Laden.
how could such a place fail?
I never understood petite steaks. What’s wrong with taking some home for later?
I thought her Steakhouse was on Listeria Lane, not The Strip.
I met the Iceman and Moses Malone eons ago. Always liked the Texas teams except for the Cowgirls, Giants fan.
What a waste of a fine looking woman.
She’s a typical ultra-rabid lib who is fully cognizant that laws are for the little people and not elites like herself (except sometimes they DO get a bit of a surprise when they find out they’re not TOTALLY immune.)
Pretty much agree
Oops...Eva you are supposed to keep the illegals clean...
Oh, you’re one of those evil Republicans engaging in the war against women.
Shame on you!
Yep Im just a meanie :-)
Well, we’ll let it slide this time. Your heart is always in the right place. :-)
Let’s just say I have a war on liberals..since Longoria is an abortion loving flaming lib, I don’t have any pity for her
Well yeah, SHe was a full feminist spectrum dining experience challenging the entrenched white male kitchen establishment that had failed to provide for the critical needs of Wymen with eating disorders that the petit steaks and discrete portions that SHe addressed.
The subtle addition of emetic elements allowed for the invisible assistance of purging without the embarrassment of plunging half of ones hand down the throat or using tooth brushes or other implements. Anorexics and bulimics could relieve themselves of self punishing feelings of guilt, not to mention avoiding the accidental view of laxitives. True feminist freedom to be the elegant goddess that resides in all wymen.
It is no surprise that the hyper macho wymen hating thugs from the Health Dept chose to persecute Ms Logorhea's ground breaking venture until the threat to the patriarchal overlords was quashed.
(Three years of shacking up with a feminist author and I can write this crap falling down drunk, bwahahahahaha ;>)
