Eva Longoria: My Restaurant Was NOT Closed For Health Code Violations
Eva Longoria is clearing up some misconceptions about why her Las Vegas restaurant closed.
Earlier this week, it was announced that SHe by Morton’s, the actress’ female-focused steakhouse, would be shuttering after less than two years.
In April, the space had been temporarily closed after health inspectors found a number of violations on the premises — but SHe by Morton’s quickly reopened with an “A” grade from the Southern Nevada Health District.
When the news that the restaurant was closing for good was revealed, a number of outlets — including the Daily Mail — incorrectly linked the earlier inspection issue with what was actually an unrelated business decision.
On Saturday, Longoria took to Twitter to address the rumors:
Just to be clear, the steakhouse in Vegas DID NOT close for health violations. We had an ‘A’ rating at time of closure. People should read more carefully. SHe Las Vegas was originally concepted as a nightlife entertainment venue. Since the closing of the nightclub venue, we have been met with considerable resistance from our Landlord to re-concept the nightlife theme which impacted our ability to deliver on our guests’ experience.
There you have it.
