Deerfield-news. com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-To our readers, residents, and visitors “Dirty in Deerfield” is generally used for restaurant inspection reports, convenience store inspection reports, and supermarket and bakery inspection reports.
We do not like to publish temporary closures or bad or failed inspections. But that said the owners of the establishments are the ones that should make sure they never have those conditions or violations that could pose harm or potential harm to the public.
We know many of the operators and owners of many local Deerfield Beach restaurants. We do not want to bash anyone of them we want them to pass inspections with the least amount of violations possible. I understand things happen especially when you have employees and you are running a busy business.
I understand that if you operate a supermarket a bakery a restaurant a sandwich shop or a convenience store and you see rats or rat droppings or roaches or excrement call an exterminator get expert advice and take care of the issue.
When you are handling food follow the law. Wash your hands or wear your gloves as set out in the law don’t be touching food and then your face or hair or…then handle food again without washing your hands or changing gloves or both.
As I posted yesterday the Deerfield Beach Cafe restaurant was closed temporarily in 2017 by the DBPR and maybe the city is looking for a change as that pissed them off. I do not know if that is the case. I do not know why other than the lease is expiring in October and the city is looking for bids on a new lease for that property. I do not know if that is not being fair or if they have done something underhanded to the current operator. Getting outbid by another local restaurateur is not a crime . The city has to put something like leasing a restaurant building they own next to the pier out for bids. I will find out and post on Deerfield News.
I do not know any of the three parties involved in the ongoing lease negotiations and or bidding for Deerfield Beach Cafe by the pier. I have requested the public records including the current lease and will be doing follow-up stories.
For those who do not seem to know the city is the owner/landlord of the building and property and leases it out.
In Florida, two different agencies- the DBPR and the Florida Department of Agriculture are responsible for inspecting all of the above-mentioned types of food establishments.
Department Of Business And Professional Regulation
and the Florida Department of Agriculture are responsible for inspecting all of the above-mentioned types of food establishments.

We report all information from these two agencies verbatim. Yes, we may make a comment in our first or second sentence if the establishment is a repeat or sometimes habitual receiver of bad or failed inspections.
