Popular beachfront restaurant to close Aug 10 for massive renovation, Re-Open late September.
If you’ve ever hit the eastern Deerfield Beach scene, you know about Oceans 234 – the iconic oceanside restaurant & bar on A1A with a million dollar beachfront view. But if you want to enjoy some of that oceanfront dining, you better do so QUICK! That’s because Oceans 234 is set to close for renovation on August 10. Yes, the beachside beauty is getting some work done. Not just a pedi/mani mind you — but an entire new, $1 Million+ transformation, including structural changes, layout reorientation, a new sense of arrival and signage, an enhanced interior flow with increased indoor seating, a private oceanfront function space and an engraved paver path leading from entrance to beachfront boardwalk.
According to owner Danielle Rosse, the extensive re-design “will revitalize Oceans 234 with a vibrant, fresh look and feel. The transformation — done in rich woods and subtle hues with tropical touches of turquoise, tangerine and natural greenery — will deliver contemporary casual resort-style environs with the exterior of building more distinguished and recognizable.” Danielle further notes, “The design plan will boast an upscale look, yet retain the very comfortable, social vibe and feel that Oceans 234 has long been known for. Our guests will be wowed by the new openness and beauty of the views without any column obstruction and complemented well by new furnishings, artwork and a new menu.” You can even get an advance preview of what’s to come — just check out the artist renderings on the restaurant’s website: http://www.oceans234.com.
So what does a million dollars’ worth of renovation get you? For starters, the obstructing columns on the exterior patio will be removed to open up the outside — without interrupting the space — to yield full views of the beach, ocean and pier. Current bathroom accommodations will be relocated to create more flexibility in seating capacity inside with a new private area that will accommodate up to 40 guests. A Nano glass sliding door system incorporated into the design will open up the building and bring more of the outdoors to its inside diners. Visitors will also be welcomed into a new re-oriented reception area that transitions into a more inviting, cohesive interior design and flow. Various configurations of seating in the reception/open bar area allow for more guest interaction with intimate seating areas, high tops and a long banquette table for one large party or shared by multiple groupings.
Also part of the package. a newly renovated menu, under the talented hands of Executive Chef Victor Franco. Chef Victor assures us that some of the Ocean’s favorites will remain. But we’ll also get a taste of some new and exciting menu additions, with a focus on freshness. Chef Victor is one talented culinarian – and if his current cuisine is any indication, we’re in for some kick-ass new treats at Oceans 234!
Rosse added that Oceans 234 will be open until constructions on August 10 and encourages guests to take advantage of its many special countdown promotions, events and menu specials planned (with details featured on www.Oceans234.com and its Facebook page). Note in particular a joyful Closing Party on August 9th (date subject to change). The restaurant is scheduled to re-open in late September – but, as with any construction project – delays happen. So stay tuned for updates on the reopening!
