'Famous Food' Restaurant

Re-Opening After Closure for Cockroaches

9/10/2011 6:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lemon Basket -- the restaurant that was at the center of the VH1 show "Famous Food" -- is re-opening tonight after being closed for a few days thanks to a little problem ... with cockroaches.

According to our sources, the restaurant -- located on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood -- was shut down for a couple of days after being cited for health violations involving "cockroach infestation."

But it's all good now -- we're told the restaurant remedied all their issues and is taking reservations for dinner tonight.

Who's hungry?

Why is this relevant? Not everyone on this site lives in, or would have occasion to visit, a Hollywood restaurant. Even tourists. It's just advertising.

They should have covered them in chocolate and said it was a exotic dessert. I wonder how many people would still eat there? Although the best time to do it would probably be after the inspection because you know everything is cleaned up and everyone has clean hands. But still...

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Thought danielle staub was supposed to be doing such a stellar job there. As she tells it, she worked harder than anyone. Yah.

In the interest of keeping things legible, I've compiled a list of words that are usually censored by your system, tmz. Now while most of your users will not use many of these words, for obvious reasons, maybe you can lift the ban anyway in the interest of clarity. Some of these may actually show up w/o being censored.

OMG! Once ****roaches get in, you can't get them out by closing for a "few days" and having it exterminated. The roaches will be back, they've laid eggs all over, they are still there. Disgusting!!!!!!!

Roaches are almost always a death knell for a business. Either you see the roaches and dont come back OR you hear about them and dont go anymore.

We shall see.....
