Health Inspector Ordered Restaurant Closed For Second Time In Two Months.
Delray Marketplace Management, Which Built In The Agricultural Reserve, Is Now Complaining About Presence Of Bugs.
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Ocean One Bar and Grille in Delray Marketplace will remain closed until further notice. For the second time in two months, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation found multiple “high priority” violations in the restaurant, including an infestation of flies.
Instead of a quick fix, the restaurant announced it will remain closed until at least July.
”Due to the overwhelming presence of common house flies at Delray Marketplace We’ve voluntarily paused operations until we can install physical barriers to reduce the liklihood of fly presence at our restaurant. This temporary pause is for our safety and yours.
While it is unfortunate, we are excited to welcome you back as quickly as July 1. We appreciate the strong support of the community and look forward to seeing you again soon.”
Ocean One is not alone. Multiple restaurants in the area have been cited — or ordered closed — due to the fly infestation that is plaguing much of West Delray Beach. Ironically, Delray Marketplace itself — which is built on land known as the “Agricultural Reserve,” is now asking customers to complain to Palm Beach County officials about the bugs. Many Palm Beach County officials opposed anything being built in the “Reserve.”
“Please contact the county and state authorities we have contacted to voice your concern,” wrote representatives from Kite Realty which oversees Delray Marketplace. “
Below we’ve included a statement from the landlord. “The more voices they hear, the greater support we may receive.”
Ocean One is located at 14851 Lyons Road in Delray Beach.
