Cutting Board Filipino GastroPub at 2131 Rock Springs Drive came within two points of being shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Wednesday, April 5.

Inspectors found a slew of issues, including spoiled food, ineffective pest control measures, staff not properly washing their hands, food unprotected from potential contamination and kitchenware improperly sanitized and dried.

Cutting Board’s one previous inspection last June resulted in an A grade.

As of April 12, the restaurant still has 39 demerits from the health department.

The health district conducts unannounced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. 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.
