State Inspectors Find 13 Violations At Oliver Martinez’s Miami Restaurant
Olivier Martinez is licking his wounds after a punch-up with Gabriel Aubry that left both in hospital. But that’s not the only problem the suave Frenchman, who is engaged to Halle Berry, is currently facing!
The actor part owns a restaurant in Miami – and the eatery has been slapped with a whopping 13 critical violations, following a routine inspection.
Critical means ‘likely to directly contribute to food contamination and illness’ according to the website of the state’s Department of Business and Professional Regulations.
On top of that Villa Azur was given seven further violations deemed noncritical, The Miami Herald reports.
The critical violations included serving fish raw without having undergone parasite destruction, food stored on the floor, staff handling ready-to-eat food without gloves; food thawing in standing water and cutting boards on the floor.
As a result of the inspection, carried out by state authorities on November 16, a follow-up inspection has been issued.
Aside from when follow-ups are ordered necessarily, restaurant inspections are generally conducted once a year.
Magda Afif, a spokesperson for Villa Azur, told the Herald: ‘The kitchen is very clean. We follow all the rules and regulation. We did have an inspection, but the inspector found no major violation.’
The opening of the Florida eatery, which Martinez owns alongside former night club host Michael Martin and Nikki Beach Group’s Jean Philippe Bernard, took place in March.
It comes as Martinez was involved in a brutal brawl with Aubry, the father of Berry’s four-year-old daughter Nahla on Thursday.
