DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Ocean One Grille in Delray Market Place at 14551 Lyons Road is the subject of ten “high priority” violations issued by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation The first inspection was so bad that a second inspection was ordered. Several of the original issues remained when the inspector returned.
