‘Rodents, Insects, Birds Or Animals': Lisa Vanderpump’s Beverly Hills Restaurant Slammed With Critical Health Violations — AGAIN!

lisa-vanderpump-villa-blanca-wide

Lisa Vanderpump’s swanky Beverly Hills restaurant Villa Blanca has registered a series of health department violations — just six months after it was CLOSED for three days for  “rodents, insects, birds or animals,” RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

The most recent inspection by the County of Los Angeles Public Health Department was conducted on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s eatery on February 2, 2014.

The 90 rating is still an A, but with five violations it is a below the previous number — 91 — from the last inspection on October 1, 2013. The violations included:

February 2, 2014 VIOLATIONS

  • Proper hot and cold holding temperatures
  • No rodents, insects, birds or animals
  • Adequate handwashing facilities supplied & accessible
  • Equipment/Utensils – approved; installed; clean; good repair, capacity
  • Floors, walls and ceilings: properly built, maintained in good repair and clean

A source close to Vanderpump told Radar: “The restaurant has an A rating and always complies to the health code.”

The Villa Blanca closure occurred from September 16 to 19, 2013, following an 86 rating the restaurant received with a violation of “no rodents, insects, birds or animals.”

September 16, 2013 VIOLATIONS

  • No rodents, insects, birds, or animals
  • Proper hot and cold holding temperatures
  • Food properly stored; food storage containers identified
  • Equipment, utensils and linens: Properly storage and use
  • Floors, walls and ceilings: properly built, maintained in good repair and clean
  • Equipment/Utensils – approved; installed; clean; good repair, capacity
  • Nonfood-contact surfaces clean and in good repair
  • Adequate ventilation and lighting; designated areas, use
  • Toxic substances properly identified, stored, used
  • Plumbing: Plumbing in good repair, proper backflow devices
  • Permit Suspension

The October 1, 2013 inspection was listed as owner initiated, presumably by Vanderpump and Ken Todd. But the owners managed to rate a 91 and “no rodents, insects, birds, or animals” was not on the list. The violations included:

October 2, 2013 VIOLATIONS

  • Premises; personal/cleaning items; vermin-proofing
  • Food properly stored; food storage containers identified
  • Equipment, utensils and linens: Properly storage and use
  • Equipment/Utensils – approved; installed; clean; good repair, capacity
  • Floors, walls and ceilings: properly built, maintained in good repair and clean

Villa Blanca is no stranger to criticism: As Radar previously reported, Vanderpump was hit with claims that she served cardboard to a customer in her salad twice last May.

When the diner at the reality star’s restaurant found a piece of cardboard in her lobster and crab salad she promptly returned it, only to be given a second salad with another piece of cardboard mixed in with the greens.

At the time, Vanderpump denied  the cardboard-in-salad controversy, saying: “This all feels a little strange.”

She said Villa Blanca had served 27 crab and lobster salads that lunchtime “with no issue.”
