Remember when we said that Jay-Z had launched a party to celebrate the re-opening of his club without having Blue Ivy present? Well, apparently the celebration was for nothing.
Jay-Z’s Club 40/40 restaurant was shut down by the New York City health department due to the number of health-code violations: 69 of them! Here’s why:
The fridge was supposed to be set at 41 degrees but the restaurant put it at 60, the workers were preparing the food with bare hands, and the hot food were simply not kept hot enough on the counter. Inside the fridge, it was found 50 pounds of raw chicken wings, five pounds of raw shrimp and 100 turkey burgers at risk. Staff also mixed salsa with his bare hands.
“If you have a walk-in place with food like this, you put a hell of a lot of people at risk,” a source told the NY Post. “A night of dinner and dancing should not include the risk of contracting food-borne illness.” The health department immediately closed the venue and prevented customers from dining there. The place could receive “C” grade, which is the lowest grade for hygiene a restaurant can receive in the city. A hearing would determine the grade next month.
Well, that has to be disappointing especially since he spent $10 million to fix things up in 10 months because of the last time it was shut down with 39 violations. I’m not quite sure how you go from 39 to 69 violations after you spend so much to fix things up, but hopefully he fixes things for good or decides if he even wants to spend more money to keep the place running.
