LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas Strip hotel restaurant bearing the initials of celebrity financier Donald Trump was briefly shut down for cleaning recently after failing a routine health department inspection.
DJT is the signature steakhouse at the Trump International Hotel. It reopened with a restored "A'' grade, hours after Southern Nevada Health District inspectors on Nov. 2 logged a staggering 51 violations.
Thirty violations would get a "C'' grade.
Inspectors reported finding outdated, expired, unlabeled, mishandled and improperly stored food.
KTNV-TV reported that caviar was found more than a month old and duck dated to June.
A hotel marketing manager told KTNV that adjustments were made immediately, and that delivering an exceptional experience to guests is a top priority.
Hotel marketing chief Jason DeMuth didn't immediately respond Friday to messages.
