To be fair, it’s not sure how much JT is involved in the restaurant these days.

But his name’s on it, so there’s a potential for stigma.

justin.timberlakeJustin Timberlake’s New York City restaurant has been hit with charges of sanitation violations during a recent health inspection, including a citation for mice activity.

Officials at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene gave the Sexy Back hitmaker’s Southern Hospitality venue a routine examination in July, and according to the department’s records, the place received four violations.

In the documents obtained by, two of those violations were critical, with the first showing “evidence of mice or live mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food area”, adding the venue has “conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.” The other citation suggests an area of the kitchen which comes in contact with food was “not properly washed, rinsed and sanitised after each use, and following any activity when contamination may have occurred.” The final grade for Southern Hospitality is still pending, and the restaurant remains open.
