The restaurant continues to be a controversial part of the controversial Seven Bridges community. The original restaurant operator was removed from Seven Bridges when questions were raised over its bookkeeping. That company is now suing the Seven Bridges homeowners association. The second company reportedly couldn’t make money and was replaced by famed chef Angelo Ellia. His high-profile attempt ended in less than a year when residents verbally assaulted his workers, with one resident stalking workers and allegedly threatening physical assault when food was delayed.

The Seven Bridges community continues to battle a federal religious discrimination case and is a party to four open cases in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

Despite the restaurant issues, lawsuits, and federal imprisonment of two homeowners, real estate expert Zev Friedus tells us that the community remains hot and property values are soaring. There are currently sixteen homes for sale in Seven Bridges ranging from $1.8M to $4.99M.
