The Southern Nevada Health District has been busy, busy, busy cracking down on restaurants. Just this week, five found themselves shut down.
First up, Gilligan's Hideaway at 2601 Atlantic St., shut down with 19 demerits discovered during a routine inspection on Oct. 15, according to the SNHD. Inspectors found the staff wasn't washing their hands, an imminently dangerous cross connection of back flow between waste water and sewage and food unprotected from contamination during storage.
Banana Leaf Asian Cuisine at the Riviera was shut down Oct. 12 after inspectors found no potable water or hot water, an imminent health hazard that called for immediate closure.
The Java Stop Cafe, also at the Riviera, was shut down Oct. 12 when inspectors found no potable or hot water, again an imminent heath hazard calling for immediate closure.
The Harrah's Carnival Court Portable Bar at 3475 Las Vegas Blvd. S. also found itself shut down on Oct. 12 after a routine inspection found an inadequate number of employee toilets and handwashing facilities, calling for an immediate closure.
Side Street Cafe at 616 N. H St. was shut down on Oct. 12 after a re-inspection discovered 12 demerits. Inspectors found that staff wasn't washing their hands, food was unprotected from potential contamination and more.
