Lady Gaga's Family Restaurant Is Filthy According to Health Department
It has been a rough couple of weeks for Lady Gaga's family restaurant, Joanne Trattoria. First they reeled in a pretty negative review from the New York Daily News, and now they're dealing with some major errors with the city's health inspectors.
According to the New York Post, violations included unwashed food-prep surfaces, no hand-washing facilities close to the kitchen, and food placed in areas ripe for contamination. They totaled 42 points, which amounts to a "C" rating.
Joanne general manager Travis Jones told the Post that the grade is bogus. "We're going to be taking it to court," he said.
