Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez's Problems Mount With Sickening Restaurant Violations

halle berry olivier martinezWhat the hell is going on with Halle Berry these days? That Thanksgiving brawl between her ex Gabriel Aubrey and her current fiance Olivier Martinez was something straight out of the trailer park, or worse, Teen Mom. Both men were sent to the hospital, and Gabriel's got a resultant court date pending, but that isn't the only drama surrounding the Berry-Martinez household. Turns out Olivier's restaurant in Miami is, officially speaking, gross, gross gross, and may or may not serve up steaming piles of food poisoning.

Maybe Gabriel had a bad meal and was out for revenge?


The upscale eatery, Villa Azur, which Martinez co-owns, was given 20 violations by the Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulations last month, 13 of which were "likely to directly contribute to food contamination and illness."

Among some of the critical complaints the inspectors cited were: fish served raw without having undergone parasite destruction; food thawing in standing water; cutting boards on the floor; food stored on the floor; staff handling ready-to-eat food without gloves.

Um, that's disgusting.
I'm always a little wary of celebrity owned restaurants but I would've been inclined to cut Olivier some slack because a) he's not really a real, real celebrity, and b) he's only a half-owner, but dang, this place sounds like they're serving up pan-seared sea bass with a side of salmonella. And dudes, how hard is it to keep the cutting boards off the floor? I mean, come on.
Listen. I'm not saying the Gabriel just spent 24 hours vomiting up his intestines after eating at Villa Azur and came to Halle and Olivier's house looking for blood and a breath mint, but that would make sense. Driving the porcelain bus all night is enough to make anyone knock out a smarmy-faced restaurateur.
Have you ever gotten food poisoning from a restaurant?
