Ludacris' publicist, the esteemed Liz Lapidus, reached out to Sandrarose.com with Ludacris' personal response to my post from earlier today entitled: "Ludacris' Restaurants Straits Fails Health Inspection."
Unfortunately - yes, our most recent health inspection score is unacceptable. Serving fabulous food in a clean and welcoming environment is a top priority for us. While we scored 91 on our 2010 inspection, the codes have since changed and thus we were sited for breaking new codes such as permits posted 15-feet from entrance instead of 19-feet and not having actual "no smoking" signs posted in the building. Our kitchen remains spotless and cleanliness is a huge priority for us. We have fixed all of the violations and are waiting for a new inspection. We will report the results accordingly.
Liz just emailed again to add: "the health inspector comes back this week for a re-inspection that we expect to ace!!"
