Restaurant inspection: Lounge closed to correct health violations

A sports bar and lounge in Atlanta was asked to close and correct health code violations after failing a second inspection.

Déjà vu Sports Bar & Lounge, 2997 Campbellton Road, scored 52/U on a follow-up inspection, after earning 42/U on a routine inspection one month earlier.

The inspector said bags of “slimy salad” rotten with mold were on top of ready-to-eat spinach in a reach-in cooler. The greens were discarded.

Points were also taken off because some of the kitchen equipment was in poor working condition. A walk-in cooler was “very hot” the inspector said, and temperatures in a reach-in cooler were also elevated. Air temperatures were measured at 72 degrees and 54 degrees. Vegetables inside were moved.

In other code violations, raw shrimp and beef were stored above celery in a cooler. Prepared foods were not marked with disposal dates. Equipment and food bins throughout the facility were dirty with food debris and dirt. Equipment, food-contact surfaces and utensils were not being sanitized.

Also, the latest inspection report was not posted for public viewing.

The restaurant was to remain closed until all code violations had been corrected, the inspector said.

Déjà vu Sports Bar & Lounge will be re-inspected.
