Trump steakhouse in Las Vegas fails inspection
Trump steakhouse fails Vegas inspection
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Inspectors reported finding outdated, expired, unlabeled, mishandled and improperly stored food, according to a summary posted on the health district’s website.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.
Inspectors at DJT reported finding the old caviar and yogurt, duck that dated back to June, veal stock and tomato sauce that was almost two weeks old, and expired peanut dressing and black bean chili.
Inspectors found no measures to destroy parasites in undercooked halibut and salmon, and noted that raw tuna was being improperly thawed.
Man’s fake $100 bills had wrong face
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A Rhode Island man police say used counterfeit $100 bills to make purchases at a Target store made a critical mistake.
The bills had a picture of President Abraham Lincoln on them. Real $100 bills bear a picture of Benjamin Franklin. Lincoln’s portrait graces the $5 bill.
Dana Leland of Central Falls, R.I., was held on $1,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty Wednesday in Attleboro District Court to charges of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.
Police said the 29-year-old Leland used the fake notes on three consecutive days at the North Attleborough store to buy items worth less than $25.
