You’re shuttered! Donald Trump’s restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip 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.
Inspectors found outdated, expired, unlabeled, mishandled and improperly stored food, according to the district’s Web site. Source: Trump’s Las Vegas steakhouse briefly shut down - NYPOST.com
Bottom line …
Despite the self-promotion and superlatives, not every Trump project is first-rate or without flaws. Trump is famous for putting money into the façade and the promotion – and one wonders how much time, effort and money is actually put into the infrastructure, supervision and maintenance.
Petty much why I was surprised that the residents of Trump Place, the posh New York condominium complex that bears his name, replaced the Trump Organization with another firm as their resident management company; with many residents citing performance issues. <Source>
Trump, ever the master of self-promotion and media publicity, has put together this season’s Celebrity Apprentice by allowing some of the most uncoordinated, dysfunctional people from past shows to fight it out once again. I hope that this season is a little more than an episodic charity telethon combined with product placement opportunities. But then again, I now have lowered expectations of everything Trump except the golf courses.
