A few days ago, a New York Daily News restaurant critic dined at Lady Gaga’s family owned restaurant and was unimpressed:
“I came with an open mind, despite the fact that most of my colleagues have portrayed Joanne as the worst thing since herpes,” the critic wrote.
And now this breaking news: Lady Gaga’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria located in Manhattan, also received the lowest rating from New York’s Department of Health according to reports.
Joanne’s was visited by the health department on October 2, where six critical violations were discovered including:
* Food not protected from potential source of contamination during storage, preparation, transportation, display or service.
* Personal cleanliness inadequate. Outer garment soiled with possible contaminant. Effective hair restraint not worn in an area where food is prepared.
* Food worker does not use proper utensil to eliminate bare hand contact with food that will not receive adequate additional heat treatment.
* Food contact surface not properly washed, rinsed and sanitized after each use and following any activity when contamination may have occurred.
There were 42 violations in total. The full report can be found on The Smoking Gun.
Lady Gaga’s restaurant isn’t dead yet, however, she isn’t the only fashionable celebrity to fail in the food service industry. Here are other failed celebrity restaurants.
