Lady Gaga's Dad Freaks Out on Twitter Over DOH Grade

New, 15 comments

Joanne Trattoria, the year-and-a-half-old restaurant from Lady Gaga's dad Joe Germanotta, received 19 violation points on its DOH inspection last week. That was enough to downgrade it from an A-grade to a B-grade. According to the DOH site, the restaurant had three "critical violations" related to the cleanliness of food surfaces, equipment storage, and food that was "adulterated, contaminated, cross-contaminated, or not discarded in accordance with HACCP plan."

As the Daily Mail notes, Mr. Germonatta took to Twitter on Wednesday to unleash a torrent of complaints about the Department of Health, the grading system, the inspector that visited the restaurant (which he names), and her boss (which he also names). According to Germanotta, the violation that did him in was related to one "bad potato" that was mixed in with a bunch of good potatoes. Here's a look at some of Joe's Twitter rant:
