A major roach infestation
Health code violations close two eateries in Golden Nugget
I guess I'll feel a bit better going back to Ellis Island now!
Whoops! Sorry, I posted before I saw this.
That story just starting me to itching. Ugh!
from the GN statement, bold italics by me:
We are clearly upset and disappointed that somebody dropped the ball. This should never happen. We retain the services of a professional outside vendor, and are angry and disappointed this happened. A full investigation is being launched as to how this occurred, and we assure all of our guests that it will not happen again."
Dear Golden Nugget,
If there are "somebodies" running your restaurants, how can you assure us this won't happen again? This statement is a sorry attempt to shift the blame. These were some blatant violations mentioned in the media. If you would check only occasionally on your "professional outside vendors", you would have found this way before the authorities. But you didn't. The GN management is responsible for anything that happens within your property. And if you let "somebodies" from "outside" run your joints unchecked, your problems run much deeper than what has been found now. Own up and take responsibility.
not at the most upscale and striplike downtown property!:evillaugh
Canyonero: I think you're right on! By the way, did you also send your "Dear Golden Nugget" note to the Golden Nugget? You should!
Spot on post and I agree with Turtleman that your post should be sent to GN management.
No secret I refuse to go in the place, but your point truly reflects the attempt to shift blame.
Thanks to the encouragment by Turtleman and Joe, I sent my comment to the Golden Nugget. I asked them for permission to post their reply here as well, once I receive one.
The restaurant at the Golden Gate was cited also.
Holy $*^#(% @ - that's some lengthy list! Maybe I should just take a jar of peanut butter and crackers, it doesn't sound safe to eat out at all! Actually, it looks like most of the changes were upgrades. Thanks for the link!

Roaches infest Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas
By Darcy Spears
CREATED Dec. 12, 2012
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It's a bad day to dine at the Golden Nugget hotel-casino in downtown Las Vegas, whether you work there or you're just visiting.
Health inspectors have been very busy there in the last two days, tracking down pests and closing down restaurants.
This was on AP:
Pest infestation shuts down Golden Nugget cafe
Health inspectors shutter Golden Nugget cafe and employee cafeteria, citing pest infestation
Associated Press – 2 hrs 57 mins ago
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Health inspectors have closed two eating areas in the the iconic Golden Nugget casino in downtown Las Vegas for numerous code violations including a pest infestation.
The Southern Nevada Health District inspectors ordered the closure of the 24-hour Carson Street Cafe and the employee dining area on Tuesday.
Golden Nugget spokeswoman Tiffany Hauck said in a statement that the casino was upset that someone had dropped the ball. She assured guests it would not happen again.
The health district cited the Carson Street Cafe with 27 demerits.
Health District spokeswoman Jennifer Sizemore said she had could not speak to the nature of the violations until she saw the full report.
Its been years since I have eaten at the GN, but this issue could just as well be a problem at any establishment DT. Hope they get the issue fixed, but this is bad publicity for any Casino!
not at the most "upscale" and "striplike" downtown hotel!
I think that saying it was an outside vendor does not absolve them of blame.
management is supposed to be in control of all aspects of the property.
guess it is safer to eat at mermaids who was just on the health dept list as
one of the cleanest food service areas in vegas! :evillaugh
Great, just ate at Dupar's a few weeks ago.
and couldn't happen on the strip???
I once had a health inspector tell me "if you would see some of the kitchens we inspect you surely would not eat in that place". The property I manage goes through health inspections 4 times a year. I have in the past had multiple properties where I had inspections once per week and let me tell you things have to be bad to be closed down or the property was warned many times before the hammer fell. It all comes down to staff training, recognition of conditions by management and procedures to maintain the property. To be closed down it sounds like the GN failed all the way around.
dupar`s was just shut down with 62 demerits on february 28th.
be afraid be very afraid!
