Cutting Board, the Filipino restaurant at 2131 Rock Springs Drive, came within two points of being shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District for the second time this year. Inspectors revisited the restaurant on Friday, Aug. 18, for a routine inspection.
Health inspectors issued demerits for spoiled food, food held at the wrong temperature, food unprotected from potential contamination, inadequate hand washing facilities, inaccurate thermometers and more.
On April 5, the health department issued 39 demerits to the restaurant during a routine inspection. Cutting Board bumped up to an A grade on April 17. Back in April, 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.
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.
