2 More Restaurants Shut Down by SNHD

Two other restaurants aside from Firefly found themselves shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District on Friday and yesterday.

Pan-Asian restaurant Dragonfly, which sits in the same strip mall as Firefly at 3900 Paradise Road, was shut down by SNHD after a routine inspection uncovered 47 demerits.

Violations included a lack of hand washing by staff, commercially manufactured food from unapproved sources, ineffective pest control measures and more. The restaurant racked up 40 demerits in 2007, one short of shutdown, and had two other C grades in its six-year history.

Thai restaurant Ocha Cuisine at 1201 Las Vegas Blvd. S. also found itself shut down on Monday by SNHD with 48 demerits. Inspectors found spoiled food, ineffective pest controls and the staff not properly washing their hands among the violations.

The restaurant received a C grade with 39 demerits after a routine inspection, its first, last November that was upgraded to an A 18 days later.

The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
